Editorial Reviews

Review


"Hall's book is much more than a biography--it is simultaneously a history of the early Royal Society, to which Oldenburg devoted the better part of his life....More than 2,900 of Oldenburg's letters to and from some 70 correspondents were studied."--Choice


"Thanks to the work of Marie Boas Hall, the poignancy of the extinction of Oldenburg's line can be contrasted with the achievements of his 20-year career in the service of natural knowledge. ... In Hall's hands, Oldenburg is restored to his full humanity as well as to the intellectual reputation that he deserved."--Notes and Records of the Royal Society of London
