The Physician's Handbook







It was most likely a Doctor from the East Midlands in England who arranged for a scribe to prepare a lavish compilation of medical and astronomy writings in the mid-1450s. It's rare for its time in that the text is almost exclusively english (although I could only read a word or 3).

The Physician's Handbook is online at the Wellcome Library (thumbnail page).
