(active 1450s in Venice)

Liber de simplicibus

Manuscript (Lat. VI. 59)
Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana, Venice

This codex is a Herbal. The decoration is the work of Andrea Amadio, a painter about whom virtually nothing is known. Some of the fine illustrations were drawn directly from specimens, others derive from the typical repertories of many Herbals.
