Does anyone know anything about the "Herbarium" of Paracelsus which
describes the occult properties of thirty-six plants, and also minerals
and precious stones?
Sometime ago Adam suggested some old Eglish texts to me but I could not find
them here in my town. Would there be any other source?
Thanks and regards,
