The first major collection of Boylea€™s writings to be published since Thomas Bircha€™s eighteenth-century edition of his works presents material hitherto available only in the archives of the Royal Society. This edition of Boylea€™s Aretology (the study of moral virtue) and other moral essays from the late 1640s offers the intellectual and religious origins of Boylea€™s most vital themes. John T. Harwood also includes two essays on moral topics, qOf Sinq and qOf Pietyq; a sample of Boylea€™s private meditations, qJosepha€™s Mistressq; a short essay, qOf Time and Idlenessq; and two guides to private meditation, qThe Dayly Reflectionq and qOf Thoughts.q Harwood concludes the volume with a previously unpublished account of about seven hundred books in Boylea€™s library at the time of his death.Page 150 (continued) L. 32 joynes ] joyn L. 34 can be put ] can put Page 151 L. 3 L. 5 L. 8 L. 12 L. 22 Page 152 L. 5 L. 10 L. 27 ...
