You have such an impressive knowledge of all this kind of stuff, thanks to you and the things you posted, I've been able to get hold of some older catalogues and books and the stuff is really interesting and has whetted my appetite to discover more about the history of the humble herbalist, so sad that most of the shops and companies are closing down, we fast are running the risk of losing so much valuable information of people don't keep delving into the past.
I seem to recall reading something about the how to live for 100 years story recently, although it could have been something my Dad mentioned as the MEN is his local paper (I am a Manchester lass by birth :} )
I checked out the website you posted above and thought it may be interesting to have a copy of the booklet. However, expecting people to pay £8.95 for a download is a bit much in my opinion, especially when its just a virtual booklet and not a physical book. The cynic in me says its just people cashing in, although I do believe that it will be full of worthwhile information and a valuable insight into herbal days of yore, I'm not sure if its worth parting with £8.95 for in the current economic climate.
Of course if the publishers would like me to review it for them so I can let everyone else know if its worth paying for I'd gladly do it, although I somehow doubt the offer will be forthcoming
