Images show items acquired by the College of Physicians of Philadelphia from the collection of Dr. William Harvey, discoverer of the circulation of blood. This image shows a page of the "commonplace book," a memorandum book of Heneage Finch, relative of William Harvey and at one time Lord Chancellor of England. This shows a prescription by Harvey in his own handwriting, the last paragraph reading, "All the while he taketh this physicke (medicine) let his diet be temperate, of one dish, rise early, walk much, abstain from wine, strong drink, and all soft meats."
