The Wellcome Library of London, England, has created a digital version of one of its manuscripts, "The Physicians Handbook," an English 15th century medical and astrological compendium. The handbook is unusual in that it is written almost entirely in English. This manuscript gives unique insight into the medical culture of England in the late Middle Ages.
