Garden arcana

As I was browsing through the ancient herbal section of my bookshelf the other day, I came across a forgotten title, the odd Arzneipflanzenbuch (Medicinal Herb Book) of 1520 - 1530.

Just kidding I found these images on BibliOdyssey, one of my favorite bibliophile blogs. Go see more images of these eccentric anthro- and zoomorphic hybrids here with a link to the scanned work in the Bayerische Staatsbibliothek in Munich.
