Sample text

Boyle complained that the workmen were unable to blow a globe as large or of as convenient a shape as he wished, but they finally settled on one that was “tolerably fit, and less unfit than any of the rest” (W, I, 6–7).  Therefore, when he uses the term, he is careful to tell us that by “vacuum” I here declare once for all, that I understand not a space, wherein there is no body at all, but such as is either altogether, or almost totally devoid of air.  From W, I, Plate 1. Reproduced with permission of the Department of Special Collections, Stanford University Libraries.

Samuel Butler satirized the group of virtuosi who later formed the Royal society: Their learned speculations, And all their constant occupations To measure and to weigh the air And turn a circle to a square.  To this end, he made use of his air­pump or pneumatical engine. ” Even after pumping for a quarter of an hour, the mercury did not descend to the level of the mercury in the container, because, Boyle says, enough air leaked into the receiver to keep the mercury up somewhat.  But this step served, Boyle says, to satisfy them that the mercury falls until it reaches a state of equilibrium with the external air, the equilibrium being a function of the weight of the mercury and the pressure of the air (W, I, 33–34).

From W, I, Plate 1. Reproduced with permission of the Department of Special Collections, Stanford University Libraries.  Thus, he explicitly sets out a model of the air according to which it has pressure and he offers the model as the “notion” or hypothesis that explains (and is supported by) most of his experimental results.  (W, I, 13) The precision of his scales allowed Boyle reasonably to conclude that two thirds of a pint of air weighed about one and one eighth grain.  Thomas Shadwell’s The Virtuoso satirized Boyle as Sir Nicholas Gimcrack: Longvil: But to what end do you weigh this Air, Sir?
