"Comfrey - An Ancient Medicinal Remedy" is a detailed, scientific investigation into Comfrey, a species of important herbs in organic gardening commonly used as a fertilizer and as a herbal medicine. Exploring its medicinal uses throughout history and looking at the utility it has in modern medicine, this fascinating volume will appeal to those with an interest in herbalism, and it would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "An Ancient Remedy and its Modern Utilities", "Clinical Observations with Comfrey", "The Chemical Research", "Allantoin", "The Chemical Physiology of Allantoin", "Distribution of Allantoin in the Vegetable Kingdom", "Experiments with Plants", "Clinical Observations", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in a modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on the history of herbalism.
