William Salmon (1644-1713), English medical empiric, or unqualified practitioner, polymath and bibliophile. Although most scholars doubt that Salmon had any formal medical training, he collected medical books and had a large library which provided him with much of his medical information. Before out-patient rooms were established, irregular practitioners frequently lived near the gates of St. Bartholomew's Hospital, and obtained patients from those to whom admission or attendance could not be granted in the hospital. Salmon set up in this capacity near the Smithfield gate of St. Bartholomew's, treated all diseases, sold special prescriptions of his own, as well as drugs in general, cast horoscopes, and professed alchemy.

He wrote a great deal on medical topics and compiled works on botany, cookery, the pharmacopoeia, anatomy, medical and surgical observations, and a work on alchemy. Salmon was one of the earliest and most successful writers on popular science and medicine. Notable among his medical and surgical texts Synopsis Medicinae and Ars Chirurgica. According to Ferguson in 'Bibliotheca Chemica', "If one may judge by his library Salmon must have been a man of erudition, and of wide and liberal tastes; he must also have been a thoroughgoing bibliophile and possessed of means sufficient to gratify his acquisitions."
