EDITORS COMMENTS
This exquisite hand-colored woodblock engraving showcases two distinct varieties of Chamomile, Matricaria chamomilla, and Anthemis cotula, also known as Stinking Chamomile. The illustration is taken from Adam Lonicer's Krauterbuch, or Herbal, published in Frankfurt in 1557. This particular print is believed to be from a 17th-century pirate edition or atlas of illustrations, featuring captions in various languages, including Latin, Greek, French, Italian, German, and English manuscript. Chamomile, identified by its white petals and daisy-like appearance, has long been renowned for its calming properties. It has been used for medicinal purposes since ancient times, with records dating back to Egypt, Greece, and Rome. The plant was traditionally consumed as a tea, and its essential oil is still widely used in aromatherapy and cosmetics. Stinking Chamomile, on the other hand, bears a distinct odor and is easily identified by its yellow flowers and feathery leaves. Despite its unpleasant smell, it too has medicinal uses, particularly as a remedy for skin irritations and insect bites. The intricate detail and vibrant colors of this botanical illustration provide a fascinating glimpse into the natural world of the 16th century. The use of multiple languages in the captions reflects the global reach of botanical knowledge during this period, as well as the importance of herbs and medicinal plants in everyday life.
