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

Simon Forman, the notorious London astrologer, recorded 10,000 consultations between 1596 and 1603. Most of these are medical. Forman’s casebooks can now be searched by name (of any party involved), date, sex, age, topic of consultation and many other criteria. The edition includes images of all the manuscript pages of Forman’s first volume, and more will follow soon. http://www.magicandmedicine.hps.cam.ac.uk
