Early Modern Reading Group, London

For our first meeting we'll discuss Thomas Browne’s Pseudodoxia Epidemica: his (often hilarious) catalogue and analysis of errors and misconceptions. I suggest we try to read Book I, chapters I-VII, and then as much as you fancy of Book III – which runs through certain ‘received Tenents concerning Animals’, including ‘That a Badger hath the legs of one side shorter then the other’.

Let’s meet at The Duke of York, 7 Roger Street, at 6:30pm on Wednesday June 20th. Roger Street is just off Gray’s Inn Road.

If you'd like to come, or if you want more details, please email me:
