From Booklist:

As more gardeners become interested in growing herbs, a general curiosity about herbal lore is increasing. This expanded version of an important book traces the origins of those ancient illustrated compendiums of plants known as herbals. And despite their obvious scholarship, Blunt and Raphael have put together a readable account. Delving into essential changes in the depictions of herbs, they cite early Greek texts and then move on to an eighteenth-century French herbier and British botanical texts. These fascinating sources--gleaned from the archives of numerous libraries and museums--have yielded simple, stylized drawings and exquisitely detailed engravings and paintings, presenting much to be savored. Alice Joyce
