Note
  • Medieval Latin poem on the virtues of various herbs, written in hexameters
  • Macer Floridus is a pseudonym, probably for Odo Magdunensis (or Odo de Meung) who lived in France between 1070 and 1112. The pseudonym is likely a deliberate reference to the 1st cent. B.C. poet, Aemilius Macer, to whom this work was sometimes attributed. Cf. Hunt Botanical cat., and B.P. Flood, "The medieval herbal tradition of Macer Floridus, " Pharmacy in History, 18:2 (1976), p. 62-6
  • Imprint from ISTC. "On the chronology of the Genevan editions of Macer Floridus, see H. Delarue in Genava 2 (1924) pp. 177-86. Assigned in Goff to Belot and Vivian and by Voulliéme to Vérard."
