About the author
"John Gerard was born in 1545, in Cheshire, whence he came to London, and devoted himself to the practice of surgery, in which he gained considerable reputation. His great work on plants was first published in 1597. A new and enlarged edition of Gerard's Herbal, containing nearly 1,000 additional plants, was published in 1633, by Thomas Johnson." -- The Magazine of Horticulture, 1862
