Originally published in 1958, this book places the life of Robert Boyle in the wider context of seventeenth-century chemistry. Boas includes extracts from Boyle's writings to illustrate how his ideas and discoveries on theoretical matters influenced and were influenced by contemporary developments in practical chemistry, particularly those of Lavoisier. This book will be of value to anyone with an interest in chemistry and British contributions to science.
