In 1812, when Napoleon was on the retreat from Moscow, a young man called Henry Potter was hanging a sign above his premises in Farringdon Street, London. The sign read: "Seedsman, Herbalist and Dealer in Leeches". He could never have imagined that he had just begun what was to become Europe's largest and most famous Herbal Medicine manufacturer. Potter's New Cyclopaedia has been accepted world-wide as the authority on plant drugs ever since it was first published in 1907; used as a source of reference by medical scientists, clinicians and laymen alike. To produce a new edition of this monumental work was a daunting task, not only because of the eminent status of the previous editions but particularly in the present climate of renewed interest in herbal drugs. Nevertheless, Dr Williamson has retained the practical and philosophical traditions of the book whilst, at the same time, documenting recent scientific and medical research. This book is unique in the English language and this new and enlarged edition will ensure that it will continue to be and invaluable point of reference for all those with a belief in the power of plants.

With over 50,000 distinct species in sub-Saharan Africa alone, the African continent is endowed with an enormous wealth of plant resources. While more than 25 percent of known species have been used for several centuries in traditional African medicine for the prevention and treatment of diseases, Africa remains a minor player in the global natural products market largely due to lack of practical information. This updated and expanded second edition of the Handbook of African Medicinal Plants provides a comprehensive review of more than 2,000 species of plants employed in indigenous African medicine, with full-color photographs and references from over 1,100 publications. The first part of the book contains a catalog of the plants used as ingredients for the preparation of traditional remedies, including their medicinal uses and the parts of the plant used. This is followed by a pharmacognostical profile of 170 of the major herbs, with a brief description of the diagnostic features of the leaves, flowers, and fruits and monographs with botanical names, common names, synonyms, African names, habitat and distribution, ethnomedicinal uses, chemical constituents, and reported pharmacological activity. The second part of the book provides an introduction to African traditional medicine, outlining African cosmology and beliefs as they relate to healing and the use of herbs, health foods, and medicinal plants. This book presents scientific documentation of the correlation between the observed folk use and demonstrable biological activity, as well as the characterized constituents of the plants.
