A New Herball
A New Herball by William Turner created in three parts in the second half of the 16th Century.
The description from the Cambridge University Press 1996 facsimile is that this herbal was the first English herbal with any pretensions to scientific status, provided a landmark in the history of botany and herbalism, breaking new ground in its accuracy of observation and its scientific thoroughness. Published with beautiful sixteenth-century black-letter text and woodcut illustrations.
