A half length portrait of William Ramesey, his frontispiece to his Treatise on Wormes. Inscribed with Greek text and Biblical reference.
Dr. William Ramesey (1627-1672) born in London at Westminster was an astrologer and physician and physician-in-ordinary to Charles II. He was the son of the clock maker David Ramsay. He spelled his name Ramesey, which means joy and delight, because he thought his ancestors came from Egypt.
Condition: Trimmed within the plate and tipped to album page. Small tear in left in inscription space.
