LONDON: J Adlard, 1809 A good copy of the 12th edition of Culpeper's English Physician and Complete Herbal as revised by Ebenezer Sibley. The book consists of two parts: the Herbal dated 1809, and the English Physician dated 1810. The Herbal has a frontispiece portrait of Culpeper; dedication to Thomas Dunkerly Esq, 'Provincial Grand Master'; Preface; introduction; and herbal with 29 hand coloured plates of plants - totalling 396 pages. The second book - The English Physician - has a separate title page and frontispiece and 12 further full page tinted plates of the human body. The first two are particularly finely engraved. This totals 244 pages. An index for the herbal is bound at the rear - the final leaves have been repaired with tissue and there is some text loss. The book has been rebound in half leather with marbled boards and new endpapers. The original title label has been reused. There is some water-staining to the frontispiece of the Herbal and occasional browning and spotting through both works. The colour plates vary in quality: some being very bright and clean - others with marking or light brown staining. Plate 10 has been backed with a tissue repair. Pages 133 and 244 of the Herbal have small ink marks. The page edges are uncut.
