#MobotToYou @mobotgardenOldest volume in Raven Library (ca. 1474) is Pietro de Crescenzi's OPUS RURALIUM COMMODORUM, the 1st modern printed text on agriculture, Key Milestones and Approaching our Project Goal: A Mid-term Review on The Polonsky Foundation Digitisation Project. 800 years of Dominican books. In 1216 St Dominic settled a religious community of preachers at Saint-Romain in Toulouse.
A year later in August 1217 he dispersed them to Paris and Spain, to transform them into what in time became a global religious brotherhood, the Order of Preachers, dedicated to communicating the Christian Faith. Sent to study and teach in the emerging universities, these Dominican friars soon advanced a systematic or scholastic philosophical theology that drew controversially on newly available texts of Aristotle. They preached in the vernacular to the increasingly educated urban populace of Europe, and created new books to facilitate their mission: critical editions of the Bible; biblical concordances; theological textbooks; manuals for confessors; and collections of model sermons.

The British Library MS Viewer. 1,000-Year-Old Illustrated Guide to the Medicinal Use of Plants Now Digitized & Put Online. If you don't much care for modern medicine, entire industries have arisen to provide you with more "alternative" or "natural" varieties of remedies, mostly involving the consumption of plants.
Publishers have put out guides to their use by the dozens. In a way, those books have a place in a long tradition, stretching back to a time well before modern medicine existed as something to be an alternative to. Just recently, the British Library digitized the oldest such volume, a thousand-year-old illuminated manuscript known as the Cotton MS Vitellius C III. The book, writes the British Library's Alison Hudson, "is the only surviving illustrated Old English herbal, or book describing plants and their uses. " (The sole condition note: "leaves damaged by fire in 1731. ") (Somehow one doesn't imagine those latter sections playing quite as well with today's alternative-medicine market.) Via Hyperallergic.

Cambridge Digital Library - University of Cambridge. Treasures of the Library : Nature printing. This small volume of ‘nature printed’ leaves and flowers offers an intriguing insight into late eighteenth-century botany.
It belonged to Charles Darwin (1758-1778), the eldest son of Dr Erasmus Darwin (1731-1802), of Lichfield, Derbyshire (himself the grandfather of the Charles Darwin of the ‘theory of evolution’ fame). As a child, Charles had been interested in botany, and had travelled with a botanical tutor in France when nine years old. He either made or acquired the book the year he went up to Oxford University, labelling it number eighty-four in his library, and noting the year as 1774. Charles left Oxford after a year to study medicine in Edinburgh. As a medic, he would be expected to have a knowledge of botany as many drugs were plant based. Charles’s death in 1778, while still a medical student at Edinburgh University, meant that the book reverted to his father, just when Erasmus Darwin was developing an intense interest in botany.
