Herbalism is the oldest - and still the most widely used - form of medicine in the world. This concise history reveals its development through the ages, tracing a unique journey from Neolithic Kurdistan to Victorian Edinburgh, where Duncan Napier founded the firm that still bears the family name. The book also contains his autobiography and casebook, dealing with everything from the creation of Lobelia Syrup to a 48-foot tapeworm.
