This enigmatic little book is not too bad. Fully one-third of the book is devoted to a list of various plant & their extracts used in perfumery and what they smell like to the author. Some of his spellings for herb names are archaic. The other two-thirds consists of recipes for potpourri of various types, with four pages devoted to incense. All the information is presented in an anecdotal style, and is very general. Strangely, though the author/publisher lives in Glenwood, Illinois, all of the suppliers he lists but one are far away (New York, California, etc.) even though many suppliers exist much closer to his home, in Chicago and the surrounding area. However, there are some useful recipes in the book, and it is as informative as many more expensive books that devote way to much space to color pictures that add nothing to the information and serve only to increase the price of the book. A good book for the price. This would be a good book for a resourceful beginner, particularly one who doesn't want to invest a lot of money in an expensive coffee-table book that doesn't contain any more or better information.
