[frontispiece portrait] vi, pp 398 [4] index pp 40 [plates]. Good looking Regency illustrated edition of Culpeper's herbal. Substantial quarto, early calf with gilt border to the boards, rebacked using original black spine label; strengthening to inner hinges, old tape marks to front endpapers. The forty pages of hand-coloured plates are in excellent condition, bright and alive to the eye, minor browning to the text only, a little more severe foxing to preliminaries and title page. 'William Snowball's Book 1823' (a name associated with the north east of England) written at the head of the title page. Culpeper attempted to systematise the use of herbals and in the process created a best seller which has influenced the creation of pharmaceuticals in Britain and America until the present day.
