Medicinal Plants in Folk Tradition

An Ethnobotany of Britain & Ireland

By David Allen Gabrielle Hatfield

Assembled by two of the most distinguished botanical and ethnological scholars in Britain, this book chronicles the medicinal uses of more than 400 species used by the plain folk of Britain and Ireland. The history of these plants' usages has been mined from rich firsthand accounts captured by surveys, from more than 1000 manuscript volumes of the Irish Folklore Commission, and from close to 300 other published and unpublished sources.

This book is only available through print on demand. All interior art is black and white.
