Tips for Long Life "Conseils pour vivre longtemps"

What a beautiful image. She looks like Frida Kahlo, no?  That's impossible though - these are pages of a book from L'Ecole de Salerne in 1861. L'Ecole de Salerne was the first medical school in the Middle Ages in Salerne, Italy. Those are the signs of the zodiac corresponding body part. Funny how pisces are at the feet. Fish don't even have feet. But I guess that's the point.  If only our text books were so beautiful. I just found a free source for beautiful ancient books archived online. No dusty book smell, but still pretty amazing. If you have a little time and curiosity I recommend checking it out. Just maybe you'll find the secret to long life.
