Excerpt from The Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, From Their Commencement, in 1665, to the Year 1800, Vol. 1: Abridged, With Notes and Biographical Illustrations; From 1665 to 1672At this period, when science is so generally cultivated, it can scarcely be necessary to enter into a minute detail of the various instances in which the Royal Society of London has contributed to the advancement of natural and experimental knowledge, by the publication of its Memoirs, under the title of Philosophical Transactions. These volumes consist of an invaluable collection of observations and discoveries made by the most eminent philosophers of the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries; among whom may be mentioned a Boyle, a Newton, a Halley, and a Hales; to say nothing of other celebrated philosophers, who have contributed to this Collection in later days and in our own time.It cannot then excite surprise that a work, enriched by communications from men so distinguished in the different departments of science, and which, from the variety of topics it embraces, may be consulted with equal advantage by the astronomer, the geometrician, the natural historian, the anatomist, the physiologist, and the chemist, - should be held in the highest estimation, not only in this country, but in every enlightened part of the globe. Indeed the Transactions of the Royal Society of London are justly regarded as a lasting and most honourable testimony to the genius and philosophical spirit of the British nation. No scientific library is complete without them.Every person, therefore, who entertains the least ardour for philosophical pursuits, cannot but be desirous of possessing so valuable a work.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
