Samuel Haworth (b. 1659/60, d. after 1683), MD. Empirical physician
1683; Date of book publication.
An empiric is someone who boasts to have medical knowledge and skills, but is actually a pretender. Samuel Haworth was a student of physic in 1679 who dealt in fake tablets and pigments. The Duke of York (James II) regularly visited his premises. In 1680 Haworth was admitted an extra-licentiate of the College of Physicians. Around that time his method of curing consumption came to the attention of Charles II who ordered a trial experiment to take place on a patient, which proved successful. In 1683 he published the work 'True Method of Curing Consumptions'.
