Blackwell North Amer
This beautiful and original book, fully illustrated from some of the rarest sources, is an account by two leading authorities of the creation and decoration of Europe's most charming herbals. The illustrations, many in splendid color, are taken from manuscripts and books chronicling human curiosity about the medicinal properties of plants, and making an unconscious record, through the strange (sometimes ludicrous) customs and procedures they describe, of life in past times.
