More Kneipp in Catalan literature

Thanks to JR for pointing out that Dr Sebastian Kneipp‘s Botánica (eh? A quick search produces no German equivalent), which, purchased from bookseller Joseph Lösen in Kempten, turns up in Salvador Espriu’s short story, Mariangela l’herbolaria. That will be the Bavarian Kempten, which has hot springs and which Kneipp knew well. I’ve never been there, but, despite the evil wreaked by last-night’s cancer-mitigating curry, I think I would prefer beer and brass bands to water cures.
