    Full Description

    A boxed notecard set featuring beautiful prints of medicinal plants.
    Healing Plants features 16 hand-coloured plates from Elizabeth Blackwell’s A Curious Herbal (1737–39). Blackwell, a talented artist with a passion for the natural world, published her herbal as a means of financial support after her husband landed in debtor’s prison, and it quickly became a valuable reference for doctors and apothecaries. These notecards — featuring plants like aloe, chamomile, and St. John’s Wort — are the perfect stationery for herbalists and all lovers of botanical illustration.
