Oh. Try Pollington, Stephen. Leechcraft: Early English Charms, Plantlore 
and Healing for transcripts & translations of Bald's Leechbook (3rd 
vol. only), the Lacnunga Manuscript, and 'The Old English Herbarium' 
Manuscript 5.

Oxbow Books/David Brown Booksellers consistently sells it for $40 or so. 

> << P.P.S.:  Ye olde headache.  Or whatever.  Perhaps I could use a spell from Bald's Leechbook...any idea where I can get a copy, other than the Bodleian Library?  That's the only copy I found, and I only had a day to look at it....there were, like, five cures for elf-shot....it seems to have been reprinted at the request of Winston Churchill, but do they really printone-offs, or would there be others,  somewhere? >>
