The Royal Art of Poison: Filthy Palaces Fatal Cosmetics

The royal art of poison: Filthy palaces, fatal cosmetics, deadly medicine, and murder most foul. Hardcover. Tales of intrigue, malice, and paranoia, alongside modern forensic evidence that shows us the truth behind suspicious deaths. Many intentional poisonings did occur in the history of city-states and crowns, but many more accidental ones took place, due to the use of lead in drinking vessels, bizarre 'medicine' and cosmetics, and the unsanitary habits of the finest palaces. Award-winner. (This book may contain a small mark on the bottom edge; in the publishing industry this means that it cannot be returned to another wholesaler.)
