1650 - Advert for a Quack Doctor

This advertisement for a London Quack doctor dates back to 1650. The doctor, who lived in Gun-Powder Alley, claimed to be able to predict the future, answering questions on a range of subjects from marriage and riches to fertility and professional success. He could also tell patients whether their 'sicknesse be curable or mortall', and had 'ready prepared the most approved remedies for all diseases...that are curable.'
