Side 82 - Some plants there are, but rare, that have a mossy or downy root ; and likewise that have a number of threads, like beards ; as mandrakes ; whereof witches and impostors make an ugly image, giving it the form of a face at the top of the root, and leaving those strings to make a broad beard down to the foot.
