The career of Henry Oldenburg illuminates the development of the Royal Society during the late 17th century. He fostered the talents of many of the best-known scientists of that time, including Newton, Flamsteed, Malpighi, and Leeuwenhoek, and his relationship with them and others is chronicled in this book.
Boas Hall narrates her story well and with a tone of compassion. The British Journal for the History of Science ... a book that does much to rescue Oldenburgh from the shadows into which his own reticence about his status and abilities might have cast him. In Hall's hands, Oldenburg is restored to his full humanity as well as to the intellectual reputation that he deserved. Notes and Records
