"Culpeper's English Physician and Complete Herbal," C. 1790
The wonderful illustrations in this book, which has been completely scanned and posted online, was brought to my attention by a "Friend of Morbid Anatomy" who would like to remain annonymous.
Full description reads: Culpeper's English physician and complete herbal : to which are now first added upwards of one hundred additional herbs, with a display of their medicinal and occult properties physically applied to the cure of all disorders incident to mankind, to which are annexed rules for compounding medicine according to the true system of nature, forming a complete family dispensatory and natural system of physic ... / illustrated with notes and observations, critical and explanatory by E. Sibley ..., London : printed for the proprietors and sold by C. Stalker ..., 1790.
