This early American imprint contains a materia medica for human healing, veterinary drugs, and dyes for fabrics. Johann George Hohman was a German-American printer, book seller, and compiler of collections of herbal remedies, magical healings, and charms. He came to the United States from Germany in 1802 and settled near Reading Pennsylvania in the Pennsylvania Dutch community, where he printed and sold broadsides, chapbooks, and books, and also gave instructions in folk magic and folk religion. His best-known work is a collection of prayers and recipes for folk-healing titled Pow-Wows, or the Long Lost Friend, published in German in 1820, and which remained in print into the 20th century. How Carl Augustus Bruckman (1792-1828) came to publish the first edition of this work by Hohman is a mystery to this bookseller. See: Wikipedia.
