Original Dye treatises from the Middle ages and Renaissance...this is a treasure. Inside are many original medieval treatises on making paint, painting techniques, dye recipes, making fake gems, cleaning your fabric, (etc)as well as bizarre instructions on how to make fire that burns in water (don't try this at home :-) ) and dog collars. All texts are translated into English and placed opposite the original language. There is a long introduction and a helpful vocabulary list at the beginning to help you with obscure terms. A thoroughly fine book. ( )
