Description
The British Library

An exquisitely illustrated reference and recipe book in one: showcasing the plant-based applications of 35 common herbs and edible flowers. Adapting centuries-old wisdom, each entry describes how to grow and harvest plants, drawing upon the content of ‘Herbals’ in the collection of the British Library, and includes ideas for how the plant can heal, nourish and beautify. From angelica and chervil to nettle, violets and viola, learn to use these popular herbs in teas, sauces, balms, syrups and more. Learn which herbs are best for health and well-being; which grow well in small spaces; or dry well as aromatic decorations. With beautiful illustrations reproducing hand-coloured botanical engravings by Scottish botanical artist Elizabeth Blackwell (1707-58) for her seminal book ‘A Curious Herbal’, 1737-39.
