The Aboca Museum's Bibliotheca Antiqua is a remarkable collection of valuable old books dealing specifically with the subject of the use of medicinal plants over the ages.
In the past, the illustrations in herbals were essential to enable identification of the plant species. With the passage of time these illustrations have become valuable works of art, enriching each treatise with colour and beauty, and bearing witness to the evolution of phytographic techniques.
