The Voynich Manuscript: Cockscomb

Celosia Cristata (Cockscomb) is missing from the old European herbals and is likely not a match for the Voynich manuscript f40v. The leaves and the roots don't match either. The spectacular red flower, however, has always been my only association for the mysterious drawing, so until I see a better match, the Cockscomb will be my placeholder for this page.
