New publishing venture

For many years I have been planning to get around to transcribing and publishing on the Internet a wonderful little book that has been in my family for many years. It is a handbook used by a practising Physician in the 17th century, and liberally annotated in the margins with comments and additions to the many and varied treatments and remedies. If nothing else, it helps to explain the high mortality rate associated with visits by a doctor! I have chosen to publish this as a blog, as the work is time consuming and will therefore be completed intermittently. When it is finished, I will present it on my own website in a tidier format.
