Local Notes
HEALTH SCIENCES: Library's copy has a title page that reads: The Herbal or General History of Plants, dated 1597. However, the most recent preface is dated 1633. This is suspected to be a title page from a 1700's reprint of a 1597 edition in modern English, but this has not been definitely determined.
