I don't know the content of this book.
"nebrigolgol" brought it to the bc-meetup in stuttgart - unregistered ...

so now, here it is ;-)

From the cover:
"Readers rared in the days before space medicine and antibiotics will recognise a number of old friends among the Cure noted in this fascinating record of folk medicine in Ireland - the hot bread poultice for boils and festering sores, the painting of ring-worm with Friars Balsam, the use of cobwebs for healing wounds, the curative properties of the fasting spit ..."

A fascinating collection of folk cures, which might be very similar to the ones people around here, too, used before the advent of modern medicine. These sometimes involve herbs and things that might actually help by today's standards, but often are plain weird, occasionally even yucky or dangerous. Still, it's great to consider all the things that may have passed for cures in centuries past. I only wish this book could have incorporated more of a modern "evaluation" of how and why certain remedies were useful.

This book, which has been on my shelf -real and virtual- for over 10 years, finally goes a-travelling again. It competes in Discus for Team Phantasia in the 2013 BC Olympics.
