About this book

Napiers Herbalists of Edinburgh had inauspicious roots, they were founded in 1860 by Duncan Napier, a man with little formal education. Napiers' today has branches in Edinburgh and Glasgow, a successful mail-order business and continues to grow in the e-commerce age. This title tracks the history of "Napiers Herbalists", and places it in the context of increasing interest - and increasing competition - in modern complimentary medicine. The book may be read: as a history of Scottish herbalism; or for the stories of 19th Century Edinburgh and the Napier family; or as a study of how small businesses can prosper in the face of multinational competition.
