The Lane Library copy is bound in contemporary black morocco, gilt edges, and hand-colored. It is difficult to know for sure if the coloring is contemporary with the book but the presence of the very unusual and special black morocco binding would strongly suggest that this was colored by a contemporary hand. As such it is one of a very few copies of this famous herbal with the woodcuts hand-colored.--J. Norman, 2006
