Editorial Reviews


The signal achievement of this impeccably-edited volume is to suggest new ways of understanding the relationships in the 17th century between natural philosophy and theology, orthodoxy and heterodoxy, print and manuscript, public and private. Nicholas McDowell, Historiographia Linguistica The inclusion of all of Lodwick's work, in its various stages of development, valuably demonstrates the evolution of burgeoning Enlightenment thought in a relatively unknown writer. Alison Knight, Times Literary Supplement This is a remarkable and very welcome volume ... Technically, the edition is of a high standard. The text and apparatus are presented separately, with both commentary and textual notes at the end of the book, and it soon becomes intuitive to the user to flick backwards and forwards between the two ... the finishing touch is provided by a section of eight plates in full colour, most of them of manuscripts, which gives a fine sense of the material on which the volume is based. In all, this is a splendid book. Michael Hunter, Notes and Records of the Royal Society
