  The two best-known herbals in English were The Herball or General History of Plants () by John Gerard and The English Physician Enlarged () by Nicholas Culpeper. Gerard’s text was basically a pirated translation of a book by the Belgian herbalist Dodoens and his illustrations came from a German botanical work. The Herball, or Generall Historie of Plantes. Book History. Author: John Gerard. John Gerard was born in and originally trained as surgeon, but his interest in plants led him to become a botanist instead. He worked as superintendent of the gardens of Sir William Cecil and wrote a complete catalogue of the plants in those gardens.

One of the most intriguing aspects of herbalism is the array of beautifully bound and carefully produced books of herbal knowledge from centuries past. These old books, known as herbals, offer a glimpse into a way of life that largely revolved around the use of plants for medicine and food.   The book The Devine Farmer’s Classic of Herbalism was compiled about years ago in China and is the oldest known herbal text in the world, though the accumulated and methodically collected information on herbs has been developed into various herbal pharmacopoeias and many monographs on individual herbs exist.
