An informal lunch or coffee time to meet virtually with Kislak curators and talk about one of the manuscripts from Penn's collections. Each week we'll feature a different manuscript and the expertise of one of our curators. Everyone is welcome to attend. On November 22, Curator Dot Porter will show us LJS 419, an illustrated herbal with three styles of illustration: one group of illustrations following medieval conventions, sometimes with fantastic elements such as human faces; another, rougher but more generally somewhat more naturalistic group in ink outline; and a third group of naturalistic color illustrations of plants including roots, leaves, flowers and fruit. Written in northern Italy in the 15th century. See the record here: https://franklin.library.upenn.edu/catalog/FRANKLIN_9958047623503681
