    Abstract

    SINCE the publication of Cockayne's “Leechdoms and Wortcunning,” &c, and Prof. Earle's excellent little book on the “English Names of Plants,” no work of the kind has been published until this volume of Prof. Henslow's; an important contribution which will be most welcome to philologists and botanists. The author is to be congratulated on the possession of so important a MS. as the one marked (A), which gave origin to his book.

    Medical Works of the Fourteenth Century; together with a List of Plants recorded in Contemporary Writings, with their Identification.

    By the Rev. Prof. G. Henslow, &c. Pp. xv + 278. (London: Chapman and Hall, Ltd., 1899.)
