Synopsis: Although modern readers tend to associate the term 'science' with lab-coated physicists, in the eighteenth century the word is used in the sense of 'knowledge' of all sorts. In the era from Restoration to Reform, ways of understanding and representing the world were being reformulated in an exciting period of intellectual ferment and artistic experimentation. The age which witnessed the mechanisation of the world view and the industrial revolution also enjoyed the invention of the novel and the periodical, the exuberance of Augustan satire, and the cultural revolution of Romanticism. In the Royal Society, in the gentleman's library, in Grub Street and the lady's closet, the impact of natural philosophy was registered, assimilated, extended and sometimes challenged and rebuffed. Literature and Science reproduces, in facsimile, primary texts which embody the polymathic nature of the literature of science, and the editorial matter provides overviews and extensive references, with a consolidated index at the end of each four-volume set. These volumes provide a much-needed resource for specialised academics, and researchers with a broad cultural interest in the long eighteenth century.
