Description


Herbals (derived from the Latin liber herbalis 'book of herbs') are collections of plant descriptions covering the plants' medicinal, culinary, aromatic, magical, or other properties. Like other early manuscripts, herbals were often 'published' through repeated copying by hand. The herbal reproduced here is a copy of MS Masson 116 held at the Biblioth que de l'Ecole des Beaux-Arts, Paris. It was produced in Lombardy, North Italy in c.1440 and acquired in 1753 by the newly founded British Museum. Richly illustrated with full page color miniatures on each folio, it is currently held by the British Library, London.
