Paduan Carrara Herbal...

Hi everyone,

The British Library's Curator of Manuscripts tells me that the Paduan Carrara Herbal is more accurately referred to as the Serapione Herbario Volgare, and is catalogued within the BL's manuscript collection as British Library MS Egerton 2020.

He also points out that it has been mentioned in P.M. Jones, Medieval Medical Miniatures (London, 1984), and in O. Pächt, 'Early Italian Nature Studies', Journal of Warburg and Courtauld
Institute, XIII (1950), pp. 13 ff - both of which sources seem highly likely to reward further study.

Cheers, .....Nick Pelling.....
