504    Includes bibliographical references and index 
520    "Mostly remembered for his library and for his biblical 
       criticism, Isaac Vossius (1618-1689) played a central role
       in the early modern European world of learning. Among 
       other subjects, Vossius published on the true age of the 
       world, optics, and the merits of Chinese civilization. He 
       was appointed an early Fellow of the Royal Society, and 
       moved in the circles which later gave rise to the 
       AcadeĢmie Royale des Sciences. Together with Christiaan 
       Huygens (1629-1695), he was considered the Dutch 
       Republic's foremost student of nature. In this volume, a 
       range of authors analyse Vossius'sfascinating world of 
       scientific discovery, freethinking, career opportunities, 
       slander and gossip - the full spectrum of the Republic of 
       Letters, much of which has sadly been written out of the 
       history of both scholarship and science"--|cProvided by
