Summary
Quack, conjurer, sex fiend, murderer--Simon Forman has been called all these things, and worse, ever since he was implicated (two years after his death) in the Overbury poisoning scandal that rocked the court of King James. But as Barbara Traister shows in this fascinating book, Forman's own unpublished manuscripts--considered here in their entirety for the first time--paint a quite different picture of the works and days of this notorious astrological physician of London
