    Gerard’s Herball is a survey of the plants known in England in the late 16th century and is quite unlike a scientific book published today. Gerard’s commentary on each plant is delivered in a personal, anecdotal manner, mentioning plants growing in his own garden and reporting observations of other plant enthusiasts and growers. The perfect book for global foragers, fermenters, and those fascinated by the healing power of herbs. Isted has cornered the fashion world’s desire to heal themselves naturally – with clients including Missoni and Jimmy Choo – and now brings his delectable potions to a wider audience/5.

    Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes Very Much Enlarged and Amended By Thomas Johnson Citizen and Apoyhecarye of London. London: A. Islip, J. Norton and R. Whitakers, Thick folio, period-style full red morocco gilt, raised bands, elaborately gilt-decorated spine. This little book is almost as delightful as its author. Full disclosure: Melissa Cole is the chair of beer judging at our Quality Drink Awards. The beer judging session was the most hilarious and enjoyable of all for me this year, primarily because Melissa is knowledgeable without being snobby, funny without being mean, and a great guide to.

    And today I held a year-old copy of Gerard’s Herball. In my hands. I’m still a little bit shaky with reverence and awe. Perhaps most amazing: You can hold it in your hands, touch it, turn its pages and read its words, too. The book is in the NUNM library, which is open to the public and one of the Portland’s great undiscovered gems. By Melissa Schultheis. John Gerard’s () reprinted Herball or Generall Historie of Plantes () provides a fascinating account of women’s role in herbal medicine and a new lens through which to analyze Shakespeare’s portrayal of ’s text attempts to normalize women’s medical practice, in part, by excluding them from professional status.
