Jenny de Gex (ed & in). The glimpses of the medieval world suggested by extracts from early herbals reveal a universe quite different from our own. An absorbing mixture of learning & folklore, the medieval herbal was a virtual encyclopedia on all matters relating to herbs. These handwritten manuscripts, often richly illustrated, offered remedies for diseases, & included recipes for love potions, face-washes & cosmetics & gave practical instructions on how to gather & store herbs. Herbals also reveal the many beliefs surrounding the uses of herbs, beliefs which leaned heavily on other ideas popular in the Middle Ages like astrology, humors & the doctrine of signature. Illustrated with finely-worked illuminations from existing herbals.
