In this issue R. B. Williams discovers a rare set of hand-colored lithographic plates of British poisonous plants and links it to materia medica, botanical artists, publishers, education, legislation and pharmacy in Victorian Britain. Jana Vlachová (Tvrzníková) inspects illustrations in the Prague editions (1562, 1563) of Pietro Andrea Mattioli's herbal to reveal new monograms of draughtsmen. If you're ready to take us on a new adventure in the pages of our journal of botanical history, check out the topics and submission guidelines available on the Huntia page.
