Table of Contents:
1 "Wild andrachle." Desfontaines identifies it with the Sedum satellite; Fée, though with some hesitation, with the sedum reflexum of Linnæus, the Sharp-pointed stone-crop, or Prick-madam. The Sedum, however, is of a caustic and slightly corrosive nature, and not edible; in which it certainly differs from the Andrachle agria of our author. Holland calls it "Wild purslain."
2 This is probably the meaning of "palpebras deglutinat."
3 See c. 19 of this Book.
4 See c.100 of this book
5 "Strigil." This in general means a "body-scraper;" but it most probably signifies a "syringe," in the present instance. See B. xxix. c, 39, and B. xxxi c. 47.
6 See B. xxiv. c. 35.
7 See c. 19 of this Book.
