Witnesses to Medieval MedicalPractice in the Harley Collection

2008

Abstract

The new Wellcome Trust funded catalogue of medieval medical manuscripts in the Harley collection brings to light some of the critical documents for understanding how medicine was actually practised in fifteenth-century England. Thomas Fayreford and John Crophill both kept notes of their cures in manuscripts they owned, while the anonymous apothecaries writing in Harley MS. 1628 recorded medicines made for individuals at the court of Edward IV.
