For me, and others like me, it's a history book and a herb garden, yes,
in the same way a hydrant would refer to a fire hydrant.

So, for you, is it "a history book" and "a herb garden"? Or......... "an
<pause> history book" and "an herb garden" ?

(The <pause> was for a lurch in the flow of speech... but then, I found
it awkward to say "anhydrous" the first few times... oh, wait... I still
do. :-) ) The information contained in this electronic mail
