A Modern Herbal -
Biblographical Note

(from printed edition)

It is impossible to give a complete list of the works consulted for reference in the compiling of this HERBAL.

Mrs. Grieve has of course drawn her knowledge from books as well as from plants.

As Editor I have confirmed her facts with those in Bentley and Trimen's Medicinal Plants in four volumes, Clarke's Dictionary of Materia Medica in three volumes, and Potter's Cyclopaedia of Botanical Drugs and Preparations.

I have also consulted Anne Pratt's Flowering Plants of Great Britain in four volumes, Stephenson and Churchill's Medical Botany in three volumes, Dr. Fernie's Herbal Simples, Rhind's History of the Vegetable Kingdom, and the English and French official Pharmacopoeias.

Bear in mind "A Modern Herbal" was written with the conventional wisdom of the early 1900's. This should be taken into account as some of the information may now be considered inaccurate, or not in accordance with modern medicine.
