Morin, I m pretty sure you are asking Johanna, but I thought to share the ones I found. The first one is called An Early Herbarium. Go to the website,Message 1 of 25 , May 3, 2012View SourceMorin,I'm pretty sure you are asking Johanna, but I thought to share the ones I found. The first oneis called An Early Herbarium. Go to the website, select Plant Kingdom. Some other herbal records there too.This second site is both in Italian and English. It has a photo of an open book in an Italian site. Luca Ghini was the first person to make an herbarium.There is also a written one which talks about the herbs mostly in Italian with Greek and other language names for the plants by Andre Caselpini. The title is: Illustratio in hortum siccum Andreae Caesalpini. "1524 or 5-1603, Cesalpino, Andrea,, Herbaria, Herbarium, Italian"I am sorry to say I have the habit of looking at websites, and if I like the content, I cut and paste for later use and then I forget the address for them. I downloaded the pdf for the book, maybe you can search for it. I am on my way out right now, and don't have the time. Maybe later today I can go back and see if I can find the actual websites. It annoys me, I often have to look for stuff all over again for bibliographies. I started cutting and pasting the htmls at the end of each work, but for this one I didn't. : (Isabella

Well, actually the term also applies to a room full of specimens.
But the type of herbarium that interested me was the book of dried
specimens, usually one to a page, with written notes and often with
detail drawings as well. As printing technology progressed, more
drawings and fewer actual specimens. They stole each other's woodcuts
with wild abandon.
The descriptions I found usually involved _sewing_ the specimens to
the (obviously sturdy) page. Since the pages were also _large_, they
weren't usually bound, as we would define it, but laced together
(remember photo albums with black pages? Like that.)
I cheated, printed my pages on the computer and mounted them in vinyl
page protectors in a binder. But it was a lot of fun, and very
