Ex LRCP(1680)

Samuel Haworth – A native of Hertfordshire; “e comitatu Hertfordiæ, Cantabrigiensis olim de collegio Signeo,” was admitted an Extra-Licentiate of the College of Physicians 12th October, 1680. There are grounds for believing that he became bachelor of medicine at Cambridge and doctor of medicine at Paris.(1) He was one of the physicians to James II when duke of York, and he attained some notoriety in his day as a curer of consumption by a special method of his own. We have from his pen
Αυθροπολογια, a Philosophical Discourse concerning Man, being the Anatomy of his Soul and Body. 8vo. Lond. 1680.
The true method of curing Consumptions, wherein the vulgar method is discovered to be useless and pernicious, &c. 12mo. Lond. 1682.
Description of the Duke’s Bagnio, and of the Mineral Bath and New Spa thereto belonging. 8vo. Lond. 1683.
