Thomas Willis was still the one who brought up the live frog folk remedy for the plague and said that while he’d had no success with it, others had, and it was something to try.
Scientific method, something this man was not aware of. I mean, ok, sure, it wasn’t even established yet. But still. Frogs?! No. Boils do not need frogs. Nor do buboes.
I had a big ol’ post written about Thomas Willis and his works, then Chrome crashed and I lost it ALL. Well, everything but the title and tags.
Not re-writing it tonight, but I’ll post some of his illustrations.
