Poisonous Plants

Another book I bought on the same day; same previous owner.  It was published in 1967 and appears to have been sold at one time by a bookshop in Herefordshire (see images).  It’s full of interesting facts about plants it would be wiser not to eat, including some information about my poor rain-soaked winter aconites. Apparently their poisonous constituent is alkaloid, they have a burning taste, and their poisonous effects are little known. Subtly beautiful though…
