Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. 229 x 152 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Excerpt from Biographical and Historical Sketches The edition was prepared with the help of Atterbury, who was Boyle s tutor, and of some other members of the college. It was an edition such as might be expected from people who would stoop to edit such a book. The notes were worthy of the text; the Latin version worthy of the Greek original. The volume would have been for gotten in a month, had not a misunderstanding about a manuscript arisen between the young editor and the great est scholar that had appeared in Europe since the revival of letters, Richard Bentley. The manuscript was in Bentley s keeping. Boyle wished it to be collated. A mischief-making bookseller informed him that Bentley had refused to lend it, which was false, and also that Bentley had spoken contemptuously of the letters attrib uted to Phalaris, and of the critics who were taken in by such counterfeits, which was perfectly true. Boyle, much provoked, paid, in his preface, a bitterly ironical compli ment to Bentley s courtesy. Bentley revenged himself by a short dissertation, in which he proved that the epistles were spurious, and the new edition of them worthless: but he treated Boyle personally with civility as a young gen tleman of great hopes, whose love of learning was highly commendable, and who deserved to have had better in structors. Few things in literary history are more extraordinary than the storm which this little dissertation raised. Bent ley had treated Boyle with forbearance; but he had treat ed Christ Church with contempt; and the christ-church men, wherever dispersed, were as much attached to their college as a Scotchman to his country, or a Jesuit to his order. Their in?uence was great. They were dominant at Oxford, powerful in the Inns of Court and in the Col lege of Physicians, conspicuous in parliament and in the literary and fashionable circles of London. Their unani mous cry was, that the honour of the college must be vin dicated, that the insolent Cambridge pedant must be put down. Poor Boyle was unequal to the task, and disin clined to it. It was, therefore, assigned to his tutor Atterbury. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
