But is this an original illustration from the book or something added  
for this publication?

Either way this is a mis-indexing. "Curry" powder is a mis- 
understanding by the British of the spice mixes of India, which in any  
case, is much later than the original publication of Forme of Cury. I  
don't remember what "Cury" means in medieval English but it has little  
or nothing to do with the so-called Indian curry mixes.


I suspect it is curry because they have the book indexed under:

    * Kindle Books
Cooking, Food & Wine
Cooking by Ingredient
Herbs, Spices & Condiments
