Description : The concept of ’natural heritage’ has become increasingly significant with the threat of dwindling resources, environmental degradation and climatic change. As humanity’s impact on the condition of life on earth has become more prominent, a discernible shift in the relationship between western society and the environment has taken place. This is reflective of wider historical processes which reveal a constantly changing association between humanity’s definition and perception of what ’nature’ constitutes or what can be defined as ’natural’. From the ornate collections of specimens which formed the basis of a distinct concept of ’nature’ emerging during the Enlightenment, this definition and the wider relationship between humanity and natural history have reflected issues of identity, place and politics in the modern era. This book examines this process and focuses on the ideas, values and agendas that have defined the representation and reception of the history of the natural world, including geology and palaeontology, within contemporary society, addressing how the heritage of natural history, whether through museums, parks, tourist sites or popular culture is used to shape social, political, cultural and moral identities. It will be of interest to scholars and practitioners within heritage studies, public history, ecology, environmental studies and geography.

Description : Excerpt from Twenty Eighth Annual Report of the Board of Trustees of the Public Museum: Of the City of Milwaukee, September 1, 1909, to August 31, 1910 Gentlemen - In compliance with a statutory provision the Board of Trustees of the Public Museum of the City of Milwaukee submits to you this its twenty-eighth annual report covering the year ending August 31, 1910. During this period the Board has convened twelve times for regular monthly meetings, once for a special meeting, and there have been held twenty-eight committee meetings of which twenty were by the building committee. Our expectations of pushing the building to a rapid completion have been frustrated by the Board of Estimates' omission to follow the agreement made between representatives of this Board and the Finance Committee of the Council to include in this years budget $150,000 of bonds for the construction of the Historical Museum so that if approved by vote of the people at the April election the bonds could be issued forthwith. As a result of this omission, when the people had signified their desire for the issuance of the bonds for this purpose, it was found that they had been omitted from the budget and could not be issued and so the work of building has been practically suspended for some months due to our financial inability to let the requisite contracts for the carrying on of this construction. We enter upon the new year with the walls, roof and floor slabs of the building practically completed. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.

Description : Noted herbalist Matthew Wood brings twenty-five years of clinical experience to this comprehensive book on medicinal plants. The first in a two-volume set, The Earthwise Herbal profiles Old World plants (volume two will treat American plants). Organized alphabetically, the book encompasses all of the major—and many of the secondary—herbs of traditional and modern Western herbalism. Author Wood describes characteristic symptoms and conditions in which each plant has proved useful in the clinic, often illustrated with appropriate case histories. In addition, he takes a historical view based on his extensive study of ancient and traditional herbal literature. Written in an easy, engaging, non-technical style, The Earthwise Herbal offers insight into the “logic” of the plant: how it works, in what areas of the body it works, how it has been used in the past, what its pharmacological constituents indicate about its use, and how all these different factors hang together to produce a portrait of the plant as a whole entity. Ideal for beginners, serious students, or advanced practitioners, The Earthwise Herbal is also useful for homeopaths and flower essence practitioners as it bridges these fields in its treatment of herbal medicines.

Description : In this companion volume to The Earthwise Herbal: A Complete Guide to Old World Medicinal Plants, Matthew Wood, an expert herbalist who has used medicinal herbs with tens of thousands of patients over a twenty-five-year career, provides detailed descriptions of New World (North American) herbs and their uses. Organized as a materia medica (names and descriptions of herbs/plants are listed alphabetically), the book explains the use of the whole plant (not just “active ingredients”) in the treatment of the whole person and describes symptoms and conditions that the plants have been successful in treating—from digestive ailments, headaches, and high blood pressure to asthma, skin rashes, and allergies, to name a few. Wood, who has systematically studied ancient and traditional herbal literature, takes a historical view and presents information in a thoughtful, engaging, nontechnical style. In addition, he provides remarkable case studies as well as insight into the “logic” of each plant—its current and past usage, pharmacological constituents, and other elements that together produce a comprehensive portrait of each herb.

Description : Excerpt from Twenty-Seventh Annual Report of the Board of Trustees of the Public Museum of the City of Milwaukee: September 1, 1908, to August 31, 1909; February 1, 1910 Gentlemen - In accordance with the provisions of Section 8 of Chapter 328 of the Laws of Wisconsin for 1882, the Board of Trustees of the Public Museum of the City of Milwaukee submits to you this, its twenty - seventh, annual report, covering the period ending August 31, 1909. Besides the regular meetings of the Board each month, one adjourned and one special meeting were held, and a consider able number oi meetings of various committees, especially of the Building Committee, have been convened. The year has been one of unusual activities, in that much time has been spent on examining plans and bids and letting contracts for the addition to the edifice now building for the Historical Museum. This has required careful attention on the part of the Board, and much more time and study from the Building Committee, Who are immediately in charge of the details of the work. Considerable delay in the erection of the building has been occasioned by the failure of the architects to prepare the necessary plans and specifications as they were needed, but the construction as far as it has progressed is of a thoroughly substantial nature.
