Tonight, we’ll read "Herbs for Incantations", an excerpt from "The Folk-lore of Plants" by T. F. Thiselton-Dyer, published in 1889.

The Reverend Thiselton-Dyer was a British curate and vicar, along with a writer of popular non-fiction books such as this one along with “Strange Pages from Family Papers”, which was considered a masterpiece of popular historical writing.

He was particularly admired for his ability to couple in-depth research with the suspense and excitement normally associated with the nascent art of detective fiction.
