A digital edition of Simon Forman’s & Richard Napier’s medical records 1596–1634
This site now includes ‘Person pages’ which link Forman’s clients/patients across the casebooks. Person pages are accessed through the browse and search pages. Images of four of Forman’s volumes (MS Ashmole 234, 195, 219, 226) are now available on the case details pages (also reached through the browse and search pages). More features for working with Forman’s records, and Richard Napier’s casebooks for 1597-1603, will follow soon.
Images of the the first volume of Simon Forman’s casebooks are now online, alongside an edition of all six volumes of these records which can be browsed and searched. The remaining images of Forman’s casebooks will follow soon.
The latest refinement to the search facility enables searching by name, whether of querent, subject or anyone else involved. It is also possible to search for parts of names (e.g. a search for ‘gard’ will find mentions of people called either Gardiner or Lagarde), or even to search for people whose name has not been identified.
With our latest release it is now possible to search the casebooks. Forman’s records of 10,079 consultations are now searchable.
The texts of just over 10,000 entries recorded by Forman between 1596 and 1603 are now available.
The Casebooks Project website is now live online.
