Abstract:

In a series of fascinating biographies of the men who wrote about plants in early times, Mrs. Bush-Brown, through diligent research in the university and monastic archives of remote towns in Europe, makes these men live again for the reader. They were men remarkable for their versatility and their scholarship, and we see them against the background of their times, searching for new knowledge of plants, recording their healing virtues and describing their characteristics, thus laying the foundations for future studies of materia medica and for the later emergence of scientific botany.
