A stunning tribute to our past and present, The Illustrated College Herbal features paintings and late medieval woodcuts of nearly 200 plants from the Pharmacopoea Londinensis beds in the Royal College of PhysiciansRCP’s Medicinal Garden. Authors Jane Knowles, Henry Oakeley and Gillian Barlow pay tribute to Britain’s frst pharmacopoeia, breathing new life into the history of medical botany with beautiful artwork from dozens of distinguished artists.
With this book, the gardeners and the garden fellows of the Medicinal Garden of the Royal College of Physicians of London celebrate their 500th anniversary and the 400th anniversary of the publication of the Pharmacopoea Londinensis by the college. This was produced to provide the Worshipful Society of Apothecaries, newly formed in November 1617, with a single, simple standard for the formulation of medicines, rather than the plethora of different pharmacopoeias then available.
