Summary:
"This book provides an account of the life and works of Richard Kuerden, a seventeenth-century Lancashire polymath who played an interesting, if perhaps marginal, role at the interface of the two cultures of seventeenth-century intellectual life, as a physician, antiquary, topographer, cartographer and perhaps even alchemist. ... his many volumes of manuscript notes justify giving him the accolade of 'Father of Lancashire History.'"--Inside jacket cover.
