This book is about almanacs and popular medical beliefs and practices in early modern England

Published by: Manchester University Press. Beginning with an overview of printed vernacular medical literature, the book examines in depth the genre of almanacs, their authors, target and actual audiences. This book is about almanacs and popular medical beliefs and practices in early modern England. Although both these topics have been the subject, to some degree, of academic interest, this is the first study that has examined the very important relationship between them. Since their format and content will be discussed in length in later chapters, it is sufficient to provide a very short definition of almanacs in this introduction.

Popular Medicine brings to fruition Louise Hill Curth’s detailed study of the medical content of astrological almanacs in early modern England. The book’s bibliography cites fourteen of her earlier pieces, all published in this decade, on subjects found within the new work’s pages, although the author acknowl edges the earlier scholarship of Bernard Capp (1979) and others connecting almanacs and astrology.

Early modern almanacs have received relatively little academic attention over the years despite being the first true form of British mass media. While their purpose was to provide annual information about the movements of the stars and the corresponding effects on Earth, most included advice on preventative and remedial medicine for humans and animals. Based on the most extensive research to date into the relationship between the popular press and early modern medical beliefs and practices, this study argues that these cheap, annual booklets played a major role in shaping contemporary medicine in early modern England. The book discusses the various types of medical information and advice in almanacs, preventative and remedial medicine for humans, and the under-explored topic of animal health care.
