'A plaine and easie waie to remedie a horse' is the first complete
text to focus exclusively on the health and illness of the most
important animals in early modern England. It also follows on and
further develops the subject of early modern veterinary medicine
introduced by Louise Hill Curth in 'The Care of Brute Beasts: a
social and cultural study of veterinary medicine in early modern
England'. This book is divided into three sections which start by
providing an overview of the evolution of English hippiatric
medicine from ancient and medieval times into the early modern
period. The second section moves on to the structures of practice
which include the astrological principles between preventative,
remedial and surgical medicine for horses, followed by an in-depth
discussion of how such knowledge was disseminated through the oral,
manuscript and print culture.
