CORNUCOPIA II: A Source Book of Edible Plants, New Revised Edition
S. Facciola, 1998. Paperback, 713pp, 5 lb, $45.00 plus $5.00 postage and packing. Finally back in print!
A massive work, including about 3000 species of plants used for food, as well as some 7000 varieties of vegetable, fruits, nuts, etc., all with sources for seeds, plants or product. Includes 1300 sources, but the book is much more than just a source list, as it has detailed descriptions of the varieties and cultivars, and the species entries include much information on part used and methods of use. Picks up where Sturtevant and Kunkel leave off. Includes an extensive bibliography, index to common names, and indexes to part of the plant and used type of use, such as rennets, gels, hops substitutes, popping seeds, food tonics, smoke flavorings, milk substitutes, honey plants, masticatories, taste modifiers, etc. This book is an absolute must for everyone interested in wild foods, ethnic foods, new crop possibilities, and food diversification. Got food?

Used copies of this book go for $130 to $300 on Amazon.
They don't yet list the new printing.
