A digital edition of Simon Forman’s & Richard Napier’s medical records 1596–1634

Simon Forman and Richard Napier were two of the most popular astrologers in early modern England. Through four decades, they recorded more than 50,000 consultations. Their casebooks are probably the richest surviving records of medical practice before 1700. The Casebooks Project combines sophisticated editorial expertise and cutting-edge digital humanities to make these records accessible as never before.
