About

Botanicum Medicinale is a book on herbal medicine that was published in 1759 in London. The book was written and illustrated by Timothy Sheldrake, a British apothecary and botanist.

The book contains descriptions and illustrations of over 100 medicinal plants, arranged alphabetically by their common names. The illustrations are particularly noted for their beauty and detail, and were created using copperplate engraving, a technique that allowed for precise and intricate images.

In addition to the illustrations, the book includes information on the medicinal properties of each plant, as well as instructions for their preparation and use in treatments. The plants featured in the book were selected from a list of approved medicinal plants maintained by the Royal College of Physicians.

Botanicum Medicinale was intended as a reference guide for medical practitioners, particularly apothecaries, who were responsible for preparing and dispensing medicines. The book was well-received at the time of its publication, and it remained a popular reference work for many years.

Today, Botanicum Medicinale is considered an important historical work in the field of herbal medicine, and its illustrations are still admired for their artistic and scientific value. The book is also valued as a cultural artifact, providing insight into the role of medicinal plants in traditional medicine and the history of botanical illustration.
