This book was written in 1845 and published in 1849. It’s available today as a download having been transcribed and scanned by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
This book not only includes disease descriptions and treatments, but also plants and herbs, where to find them and how to utilize them for treating various diseases.
