Charles F. Millspaugh
#249. A Rare and Collectible book titled MEDICINAL PLANTS by Charles F. Millspa
New York & Philadelphia: Boericke & Tafel, 1887. This is a highly collectible and scarce book written and illustrated by the author. This book weighs 11 lbs. 0.5 oz. and contains 3 5/8" worth of pages. I'm unable to list the number of pages because the book is broken down into sections and each section is individually numbered and the sections are not consecutively numbered. The book measures 8 1/2" X 4" X 11 5/8". There are 180 plates/illustrations all suitable for framing. There is no serious damage to the book. There are about half a dozen pages which were not cut to size, i.e., they're slightly larger than the other pages and consequently were folded at the upper right hand corner-nothing that affects the written word. Also, there is some very slight foxing on a few pages, again, nothing that affects the prose or illustrations. This book normally sold for $1500 about 15-20 years ago. This is a must have book if you're into holistic medicine, a die in the wool Plant Taxonomist, a plant chemist.... Additional photos upon request! Please consider viewing my other listings (there are only about 180+) and adding me to your favorites list as I will be listing many more interesting and unusual items through out the summer.
