A Modern Herbal by Maude Grieve–2 Volume Set
This is the anchor reference for European herbs; comprehensive and highly entertaining. Although Grieve quotes and borrows freely from the works of the early herbalists (e.g. Culpepper and Gerard) and from more contemporary formularies (e. g. King’s dispensatory), her English country woman’s personality shines through—she is extremely thorough but entertainingly quirky. Besides, you can find more oddball herbs in this book than in almost any herbal, including quite a few common European weeds with medicinal uses. And who wouldn’t want to know the recipe for rosemary wine?
