Phytopinax [Greek title] feu envmeratio plantarum ab Herbarijs noftro feculo defcriptarum cum earum differentijs [Bound with] Icones Plantarum aliqvot hactensis, BAUHIN, Caspar (Casparo Bauhino) [Bauhinus]
4 BAUHIN, Caspar (Casparo Bauhino) [Bauhinus] Phytopinax [Greek title] feu envmeratio plantarum ab Herbarijs noftro feculo defcriptarum cum earum differentijs [Bound with] Icones Plantarum aliqvot hactensis
Basle Per Sebastianum Henricpetri 1596 Vellum Very Good 
Small quarto, pp (22), 669, (9), woodcut vignette to t.p., woodcut portrait, woodcut colophon, various small woodcut initials, title page slightly tender at the margins, and lacking the top corner, though no loss of print, pages browned at margins, but otherwise in remarkably good condition. [Bound with] Icones Plantarum aliqvot hactensis. One page of text, 8 woodcut plates of plants. Contemporary vellum a little marked, and with slight loss towards the base of the spine, Greek title, author and date in ink in probably a Victorian hand on spine, [the date is incorrect by five years], a very early ink inscription on the front endpaper which also carries a modern bookplate lightly attached. [RARE. Although not containing the fine woodcuts of the later work, this preceedes the Pinax by 27 years and is a remarkable foreshadowing of the binomial system - Bauhin states in the preface that, for the sake of clearness, he has applied one name to each plant, and added also some easily recognisable character. This has led many commentators to describe him as the founder of the natural system. Overall a remarkably good copy of an extremely scarce work] .

The Syon Abbey Herbal - the Last Monastic Herbal in England, c. AD 1517.  By Thomas Betson, Last Librarian at Syon Abbey, from St John's College, Cambridge Manuscript 109 (E.6), Betson, Thomas.  [edited by John Adams and Stuart Forbes]
5 Betson, Thomas. [edited by John Adams and Stuart Forbes] The Syon Abbey Herbal - the Last Monastic Herbal in England, c. AD 1517. By Thomas Betson, Last Librarian at Syon Abbey, from St John's College, Cambridge Manuscript 109 (E.6)
London AMCD Publishers 2015 1897762690 / 9781897762691 Cloth New New 
Large thick 8vo, 8 plain plates, pp 376, blue cloth, an excellent copy in dustwrapper. Printing is limited to 500 copies. [The Syon Abbey Herbal was written by Thomas Betson in his notebook, sometime between his profession as a priest-brother at the Bridgettine double monastery of Syon Abbey near London, and his death there in 1517. He is the last recorded Librarian at Syon, and also wrote the still extant Syon Library catalogue. The Syon Abbey Herbal is divided into two main parts - a list of healing plants from Greek, Latin, French and Middle English sources; and a list of remedies from Latin and English sources. One chapter, wholly in latin, is on the use of urine for diagnosis, particularly of women's conditions; another is on herbal essences in distilled alcohol. The appendices include a tentative list of Linnean names for Betson's plants; A list of diseases in the manuscript; and plants at Syon House in 1548, listed by William Turner. This book is a useful contribution to the study of the transition from medieval to early modern medicine. Syon had one of the best equipped late medieval medical libraries in both Britain and Europe. It contained several hundred medical and medical-astrology titles, many unique in Britain to Syon. Almost all of the 1747 volumes in Betson's library are now lost. Only two medical books have ever been found, a Gilbertus Anglicus Compendium Medicinae in English, and an astrological guide.]

10 DONATO, Guiseppe & SEEFRIED, Monique The Fragrant Past - perfumes of Cleopatra and Julius Ceasar
Atlanta & Rome Instituto Poligrafico e Zecca Dello Stato 1989 
Well illustrated, large 8vo, pp 64, paperback, very slightly bowed, otherwise a very good copy. [Well researched. The author's work began sometime during the mid nineteen-seventies as a researcher from the Service of Archeological Subsidiary Sciences, "a multi-disciplinary research center investigating archaeological questions with the help of the most sophisticated technology available." His work placed him in Romania to study the contents of a tomb of the first century A.D. located in Mangalia, by the Black Sea. "Among the most important objects recovered from this sepulcher were the remains of a 'beauty' case containing glass vials and bottles with traces of aromatic products. . . The challenge was to reconstruct a number of ancient perfumes or, more exactly, ointments. This led to the rediscovery of ancient perfumes - one of the fundamental amenities of life in ancient society . . ." ]

Halifax 2009 0956509401 / 9780956509406 First Edition Hard Cover New 
Large 8vo, pp iv, 434, hardbound in grey boards, a very good new copy. [A reprinting, not in facsimile, of the plant lists from Lyte's translation of Dodoens Niewe Herbal, Gerard's Herball, Parkinson's Paradisus, Bobart's Catalogus Plantarum Horti Medici Oxoniensis, Hanmer's Garden Book, Rea's Flora seu de Florum Cultura, Gilbert's Florists Vade-Mecum, Sibbald's Scotia Illustrata, John Blackburne's Catalogue of Plants at Orford, the Hortus Uptonensis, John Galpine's Catalogue of Useful Plants, John Brunton's Catalogue of Plants and Dillwyn's Hortus Collinsonianus. Each section is preceded by a slightly idiosyncratic text. In every case, the scientific name of the time is given, along with the common name, and with the current botanical name of today. It is this latter function which makes the work invaluable to garden historians and plant researchers, and it is supplemented by a comprehensive sixty page index of Latin and English names.]
