gardener's magic and other old wives' lore
i love this book...it's another that i first spotted and thought may be a peter pauper press book. it's not, and it's totally lovely all on its own (and quite rare i think).
the whole book is letterpress printed with medieval illustrations taken from the hortus sanitatis and john gerard's herball.
written by bridget boland who researched and researched to find some interesting and esoteric information.
