Ever wonder what an encyclopedia looked like in the 1600's? Pseudoxia Epidemica is just that, subtitled Enquiries into Commonly Presumed Truths. Topics of Enquiry include: That a diamond is made soft, or broke by the blood of a Goate - The Common Tenent, that Crystall is nothing else but Ice strongly congealed. - Of Authors who have most promoted popular conceits - Of Fayrie stones, and the like. Great for any bookshelf.
