This meditative Norwich physician was the author of Religio Medici [A Doctor's Religion], 1642, a work of 'curious learning', poetic language and profound melancholy, which gained a European reputation. His Pseudodoxia Epidemica: Enquiries into Vulgar Errors appeared in 1646; the archaeological Urn Burial and mystical Garden of Cyrus in 1658. He affirmed his belief in witchcraft at a witch trial at Bury St Edmunds in 1664. Thin margins, a couple of marks.
