The author died in 1898 - that it says a lot that this is still a comprehensive, useful book. Probably includes information that is rarely found. ( )

Book description
From back cover: Gleaning edible plants from herbals, botanies, travel books, cultural histories, and experiments in scientific farming, Edward Lewis Sturtevant (1842-1898) complied notes for the largest and most accurate work on edible plants, cultigents, and secondary food sources ever written. 2,897 species with comments from over 560 ancient and modern sources virtually cover the entire field. The range is from the oldest known foods, the mallow and asphodel, through newcomers like the tomato and celery, to wild foods which become important under certain circumstances. Index of Synonyms. Index of Common Names.
