A remarkable collection of Middle English texts that deal with astrology, fortune telling, medicine, horticulture and marine navigation - popular and scientific matters, as such were perceived in the Middle Ages. The texts have been edited by international scholars and much of the work is hitherto unpublished. Each text is prefaced with a description of its general scientific and cultural context. Explanatory notes are also included, together with illustrations and glosses. This volume is aimed at scholars of medieval studies, the history of science and medicine, early English literature and language, manuscripts, technical prose and popular culture.
