Re: Excellent book on medieval herbals...

Hello Nick,
     I sincerely appreciate all the help I can get to identify the herbals in the
VMS. As it turns out I was very interested in Minta Collins's book and already
purchased a copy. It is a very elegant book; however, so far I haven't seen much
that has been helpful in identifying the plants in the VMS. Thank you again for
your support.
