Exhibition historical herbal books, on 10-12 March

Three FASoS students are currently writing research papers on historical herbal books of the special collections at Centre Céramique, the Natural History Museum Maastricht, the Maastricht University Library and the Regional Historic Centre Limburg. The students will present their findings during the Maastricht Antiquarian Book & Print Fair (MABP) 2017, at Sint Janskert, Vrijthof 24, from Friday 10-Sunday 12 March 2017.

The medicinal properties of the burdock root were also known to earlier generations. In a recipe dating back to 1900 we can read that by dipping the root in a mixture of French brandy, water and double carbon dioxide soda, the hair roots attach themselves firmly to the scalp. The recipe is one of the gems you can set your eyes on at our joint stand with historical herbal books. Centre Céramique, the Natural History Museum Maastricht, the Maastricht University Library and the Regional Historic Center Limburg proudly present the most extraordinary specimens from their special collections during the Maastricht Antiquarian Book & Print Fair (MABP).
