Gideon Harvey (ca. 1640 - 1700) was one of the most successful physicians of the 17th century; he was physician to king Charles II. In 1683, as a senior member of the Royal College of Physicians, he classified the physicians of the College into six groups. These comprised the chalybeates, medical ass-drivers, jesuitical doctors, medical water-bailiffs, butcher doctors and muck doctors. Each type, Harvey maintained, cured disease by different means. .
