This is the first scholarly edition of Boyle's work to be published since 1772. The edition draws on the results of an intensive scrutiny of Boyle's vast archive at the Royal Society in London. Comprising over seventy volumes, the Boyle Papers have long tantalized scholars: this edition represents a crucial step towards the exploitation and full understanding of them. Works originally in Latin are presented in contemporary English translations. It includes a record of variant readings both in manuscript versions of Boyle's works and in authorized Latin editions published during his lifetime. It also has full annotations; translations into English of all passages quoted in other languages; an exhaustive index; and authoritative introductory material.
