Published in 1910 and edited by Henry Lewer, the introduction describes the manuscript source for this work as "found in the library of a distinguished Wessex antiquary." Covering a period of some fifty years, terminating about the middle of the eighteenth century, the work provides an interesting array of recipes for "simples"--herbal remedies used both to prevent and cure common ailments.
