"A comprehensive botanical A-Z of magical herbs and fungi for easy plant identification and application"
—Back cover blurb[src]

One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi was written by the Herbologist and Hogwarts Headmistress Phyllida Spore, and, as its name implies, covers a thousand different varieties of herbs and fungi found in the magical world.

A copy of this book costs two Galleons at Flourish and Blotts.[1]

History

This book was one of the required texts for first year students in Harry Potter's first year in 1991.[2] It was a textbook used in Potions and Herbology classes at Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. Copies of this book can be found at Flourish and Blotts and the Hogwarts Library.
