Book by Culpeper, Nicholas.

Book by Culpeper, Nicholas. Publisher: Meyerbooks (March 1, 1987). The "Original Epistle to the Reader" in the beginning of the book is NOT complete. Ms. Cunningham omitted a vital portion of information that is essential to Culpeper's philosophy: his original instructions on how to exactly apply these herbs (. his theory of sympathy, which embodies the Universal Law of Polarity).

In CULPEPER’S ORIGINAL EPISTLE TO THE READER, he vehemently warns against both versions of his own book which have been falsely put forward, as well as other herbal treatises by other authors who give list of herbs without an accompanying proper instruction as to how & why such herbs.

Nicholas Culpeper (probably born at Ockley, Surrey, 18 October 1616; died at Spitalfields, London, 10 January 1654) was an English botanist, herbalist, physician and astrologer. His book The English Physitian (1652, later the Complete Herbal, 1653 f. is a store of pharmaceutical and herbal knowledge, and Astrological Judgement of Diseases from the Decumbiture of the Sick (1655), one of the most detailed works on medical astrology in Early Modern Europe.

Culpeper, Nicholas, 1616-1654; Culpeper, Nicholas, 1616-1654. Most of Culpepper's material came from a much earlier herbal by Gerard. It is a good book, but not the best on early medicine.

Nicholas Culpeper was a seventeenth-century English botanist, herbalist, physician, and astrologer. Published over 350 years ago as a practical health guide, The Complete Herbal (1653), is still the most complete and definitive herbal available today. It contains a rich store of pharmaceutical and herbal knowledge, including herbs and where to find them, herb preparation, plasters, and much more.
  • One note on this book, there is an original copy of this before it was edited, I strongly recommend you get it in addition to this one. It is only available at "The Book Depository" online. I am working with a Master Herbalist who is training me and this is one of several books recommended to me that I have purchased. The art of herbal remedies is a whole new world that is essential for anyone considering or now living off grid. I have gained so much knowledge in such a short time, and I have connected with local dealers that are purchasing bulk products that grow wild on my property. This same review applies to all of the herbal books I have purchased, I don't just recommend one but all of them for your library as a serious or novice herbalist!!!!

  • Culpepper's writing is a delight to read. He has a sly and wry sense of humor that still plays very well 400-ish years later. As for the herbal information, this too holds up well to the test of time. Of course many of our notions of disease causation and treatment have changed, but as far as the properties of the herbs themselves, Culpepper is right on.

    To put it in context, Culpepper was infuriated by what he saw as the exclusivity, greed, and incompetence of the medical establishment of his day and wanted to help ordinary people take charge of their own health. So this book was designed to present straightforward information on the properties and use of the widely-available medicines of the day (i.e., herbs). It does that admirably and that's why it's still useful today, when once again professional medical treatment is becoming more and more difficult for ordinary people to access.

    The book is also very interesting for those interested in the history of Western medical theory or of herbalism. This edition is a facsimile, in other words it has the old-timey printing.

  • My Astrology teacher had the original Culpeper's herbal,with a section on Physic or how to diagnose sickness with
    15th-17th century astrology, quite accurate in fact. Unfortunately, when this book came to the colonies from England,
    that portion was edited out by Puritans to the New World. These Puritans were remainders of Oliver Cromwell's reformation
    who disagreed with King Henry VIII over the Bible and sought religious freedom, only to persecute those in the New World
    who did not believe as they; hence Astrology was akin to sorcery and witchcraft and died out in the United States very early.
    Nevertheless, the herbal portion is still intact, accurate and quite good for home and family use for enthusiastic home herbalists
    who want to cut down on their medical bills and put this book to use for everyday plant therapy, or for those who like plants as
    a hobby.

  • I purchased this book for convenience since the original I purchased when growing up in England is in storage.
    I was disappointed. This is a fairly faithful reproduction electronically catalogued and filed and subsequently reproduced. It is entirely in black and white- no color. The original book , herbs were beautifully drawn in watercolor, not in tiny rows
    of black and white portraits of the plants. Part of the joy of getting to know herbs is to go to the countryside and search for them using a book. You won’t be able to do it effectively with this copy.

  • I absolutely love this book. It is written in an old style so sometimes it may be difficult to understand, but is such a comprehensive book that you can find almost anything in here (almost). It does have some strange references that seem metaphysical, but that makes it all the more interesting to me. I only wish it had a table of contents for illnesses or symptoms that you could then find an herb for. It has contents for the herbs and then it tells you how they are beneficial.

  • While this is a good Herbal it truly does not replace my original Culpepper which I have lost and looking for a replacement for. It is missing some of the features that the original had which may now be considered out of date due to the new knowledge science has contributed. But, I personally find of worthy consideration in the grand scheme of health.

  • Good version. Pleasure to read, filled with historical information, a great resource for herbalists, astrologers and any scholars interested in the astrological model of medicine.

  • Raven Starhawk Cunningham's edited rendition of the "Complete Herbal" definitely does Culpeper some justice; however, a crucial element is lacking. The "Original Epistle to the Reader" in the beginning of the book is NOT complete.

    Ms. Cunningham omitted a vital portion of information that is essential to Culpeper's philosophy: his original instructions on how to exactly apply these herbs (a.k.a. his theory of sympathy, which embodies the Universal Law of Polarity). Perhaps this is what's meant by the fact that this book is "edited by...", and if so, this is very disheartening. These guidelines are essential to understand if you're going to apply these herbs therapeutically. Without providing these instructions, as given in his original epistle to the reader, the reader is left clueless regarding the larger scope of this work. Hence, my 4-star rating. Other than that, all herbs are included, and the addition of more modern herbs to the compendium is a nice little treat.
