      New to our archives: Six 16th-century woodblocks illustrating buttercup, thistle, datura, dropwort, lettuce, and teasel. The woodblocks were first printed in the 1562 edition of Dioscorides, which became the standard reference work on medical botany. These join the Tania Norris Collection of Rare Botanical Books.
