Further Reading

Over the past few years, I’ve compiled a list of works that mention Helkiah Crooke. Some are biographical, some are concerned with his time as Keeper of Bethlehem Hospital, but most engage with Mikrokosmographia. I’ve included specific page numbers that mention Crooke in square brackets at the end of those entries for which I have them. Please let me know if you have anything to add to this list.
