    This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1828 Excerpt: ...fields, gravelly hills and alluvions, open glades and thickets; but seldom in shady woods. Qualities--The taste and smell of the root, approximate to Scamony and Jalap; but are less nauseous and acrid. This root may be known by its size, yellowish color, and crevisses. It is milky when fresh. The extract from it resembles Scamony and possesses the same properties. PROPERTIES--Cathartic, diuretic and pectoral. It acts like jalap, rhubarb, briony and scamony at a larger dose, when given in substance; but the extract from the fresh root is more efficient, and is a mild cathartic at a small dose of ten or twelve grains. It is seldom used by physicians, but often by Indian doctors. It is a safe substitute for the more costly roots above mentioned, and as a root often weighs twenty pounds, it might be made an article of trade. As a diuretic it is useful in gravel, strangury, dropsy, &c. it enables to evacuate small calculous granulations, and may be taken in substance or decoction. As a pectoral it has been used for consumptive coughs and asthma; a syrup is made of it with Skunk cabbage, for that purpose. Substitutes Jalaps Rhubarb--Scamony Briony--Erigeron Sp.--Pyrola umbellata--Jlsclepias tuberosa, fyc. Remarks--It is asserted that the Indians can handle Rattle-snakes with impunity, after wetting their hands with the milky juice of the root of this plant, or of Jlrum tripfiyllwn. Henry's figure is erroneous, having triangular leaves and bracteolate flowers. The root must be collected at the end of summer; ainJ if to be dried ought to be cut in slices. No. 27. COPTIS TRIFOLIA. English Name--COMMON GOLDTHREAD. French Name--Coptis Triphylle. German Name--Kleinste Christwurz. Officinal Names--Helleborus trifoiius, Coptis, Fibraurea, &e. Vulgar Names--Gold-T.
