The image of the seventeenth-century scientist Robert Boyle owes much to a series of evaluations of him written shortly after his death by men who had known him well, such as John Evelyn, Gilbert Burnet and Sir Peter Pett. These key early appraisals of Boyle by friends and contemporaries were selectively drawn on by Thomas Birch in his 1744 Life of Boyle and, through him, they have influenced all subsequent accounts of Boyle. Some of the most important of these documents - including texts by Burnet and Pett - have never been published. In this book, these unpublished and, in some cases, previously suppressed texts, provide a new and fuller image of Robert Boyle and allow a revaluation of his life and work. The book includes Boyle's own autobiographical sketch, An Account of Philaretus during his Minority, amongst other early biographical texts, and also contains the hitherto unpublished surviving fragment of an ambitious early life of Boyle by William Wotton.
