While books.google.com might have a pdf version, it's not available (at least not
to me). In addition, google botches the images, so shrug. I haven't seen this
online anywhere else.
This scan was sent to me by my friend Jane, who is a herbalist in the UK. Many thanks! I've OCR'd and
proofread it, and put it up here. Enjoy!
Also check out Hool's other book on this site, Common Plants and their Uses in Medicine.
