_____. Robert Boyle / by himself and his friends: with a fragment of William Wotton's lost Life of Boyle. Edited with an introduction by Michael Hunter. London; Brookfield, VT: W. Pickering, 1994.
The most important reason [for emerging research on Boyle] is the extraordinarily intensive and extensive work of Michael Hunter, who has done more for Boyle studies than anyone before him (or, one might almost say, than all previous Boyle scholars put together). Apart from writing and editing volumes of essays on Boyle, he has also produced the first scholarly catalogue of the Boyle papers; he has edited (with Edward Davis) Boyle’s works, in fourteen volumes; and now, with Antonio Clericuzio and [Lawrence] Principe, he has produced the first ever edition of Boyle’s complete correspondence, in six volumes containing more than 3,000 pages. . . . This is a monumental work of scholarship, an indispensable resource for all future studies of Boyle’s life and thought.
