Synopsis

An illustrated study of manuscript Herbals produced between 600 and 1450. The author examines the two principal Herbal traditions of Classical descent: the Ioscorides manuscripts in Greek, Arabic and Latin, and the Latin Herbarius of Apuleius Platonicus. In doing so she reveals how, from 1300, the illustrations showed a new observation of nature, paving the way for the 15th-century French Livres de Simples and the plant paintings of later Italian Herbals.
