Abstract

In an attempt to etch the likenesses of common herbs such as ‘Eyebright’, ‘Golden Rod’, and ‘Darnel’, and provide their properties and uses, Betty Shaw-Lawrence not only read numerous old herbals, but also physically examined many samples of plants. Her advertisement to this limited edition of 260 ends: ‘Read, then, what is written here; mark it if you please; learn it if you will; but be chary before you inwardly digest it…’. On display is Henbane, which offers one smooth lips, and a new way to fish.
