This dual language English-Arabic herbal is illustrated richly throughout with archival and contemporary botanical art and is an object of beauty.
The flora of Iraq is particularly rich and diverse, owing to the country's diverse habitats of deserts, plains and mountains. The inspiration for this book was the work of the Iraqi herbalist, Abdul Jaleel Ibrahim Al-Quragheely, who documented the country's flora and its uses in ethnobotanical medicine. He opened a local practice in 1990 and dispensed herbal medicines for six years when communities were most in need. A Herbal of Iraq describes 50 plants and their uses in traditional herbal medicine in the region. In addition to the wealth of information it contains, this dual language English-Arabic herbal is illustrated richly throughout with archival and contemporary botanical art.
