Product Description
Elegant Herbs & Medicinal Plants 2020 Wall Calendar
Long before modern medicine and the corner drugstore, herbalists dispensed celery to treat lunacy and considered aloe a veritable wonder drug able to purify phlegm, prevent hair loss, and remedy moral decay and corruption. Since antiquity, herbs and medicinal plants (known as simples) have been studied, documented, and used to treat a host of human complaints—physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual. Today, medieval medical tomes such as the twelfth-century Book of Simple Medicines, by Italian physician Matthaeus Platearius (?–1161), are appreciated as snapshots of history.

The illustrations reproduced in this calendar are the work of French artist Robinet Testard (fl. 1470–1523). They were selected from Le Livre des simples médecines (c. 1470), an updated, annotated, and richly decorated French version of Platearius’s book created for Louise of Savoy and her husband, Charles d’Angoulême. This vellum manuscript is in the collection of the National Library, St. Petersburg, Russia.
