1:12 Scale Ortus Sanitatis MEDIEVAL HERBAL MEDICINE miniature has 28 fully illustrated vintage style pages and measures approximately 1 inch high by 3/4 of an inch wide. The book describes plant species along with their medicinal uses and modes of preparation. It is a miniature of the Latin translation of the German Herbarius which was published in 1485. The woodcut illustrations are easily recognizable and there are pictures showing herbal preparation.
All my books that are 1/12 scale have miniature hard covers. Most of my miniature books are readable BOOKS. They are printed on both sides of the page with a readable passages drawn from the actual book being depicted. All of my books interior paper, hardcover book board covers, ink and glues are acid-free archival quality. Scaled perfectly for your dollhouse, room box, dollhouse coffee table or a book shelf in your miniature scene. I personally design every book which can take up to 2 hours. I use pages and illustrations from the original books wherever possible.
This is a collectors item and it is not recommended for small children.
