(Germany, probably middle decades of the, 16th century). 279 x 191 mm. (11 x 7 1/2"). Double column, 51 lines of text in gothic type.

Each leaf WITH TWO TO FOUR ATTRACTIVELY HAND-COLORED WOODCUT BOTANICAL ILLUSTRATIONS (typically four inches high by a half column wide). One leaf with neat underscoring in red, no doubt early. Leaves with a hint of soiling, but remarkably clean and fresh (by any standard, but more especially so for an early herbal).
