Some of these were undoubtedly bizarre, often fraudulent and in many cases downright dangerous. But many more were based upon the curative powers of nature and proved highly efficacious.The main entries are based on the primary sources dating from the 16th century.

These include diaries, account books, recipes, old newspapers, articles by 19th century folklorists and the journals of celebrated visitors to Sussex.(From the back cover.)
