Finally, my own giant tome!

Gerard, John. The Herbal or General History of Plants. Edited by Hill, Thomas.
1975 Reprint. New York, NY: Dover Publication, 1633.

While I am excited by the arrival of my newest book, I didn’t really build a shrine to it, those are from St. Valentine’s Day, but it does help provide a perspective on the size, doesn’t it?

I had been using this online version of the 1597 original and I will refer to it on occasion, but it doesn’t seem as though much of the information was changed.  The editor also does a decent job of indicating his commentary, so this reproduction was much less disappointing than my copy of Culpeper’s.
