Summary
"In this detailed study of illuminated medieval Herbals, based on much new research, Minta Collins considers the illustrative traditions represented in the surviving manuscripts produced over a wide area in the period AD 512-1450." "Integrating her own research with secondary studies published in many languages over the last decades, and with the help of extensive illustrations, she offers a wide-ranging art-historical survey of illuminated manuscript Herbals. The evolution of the plant illustrations and the introduction of 'author portraits' and other figurative images into the herbal cycles, are considered. Questions of the provenance and distribution of individual manuscripts are addressed, together with broader issues of production, ownership, and function." "Medieval Herbals: The Illustrative Traditions will be of special interest to art historians, students of manuscripts and the history of the book and historians of medicine and botany."--Jacket
