Some Considerations Touching the Style of the Holy Scriptures.
De Beer Eb 1668 B
Printed for Henry Herringman
The noted chemist and physicist Robert Boyle (1627–1691) was deeply involved in theology, and Some Considerations, first published in 1681, was one of his treatises written over his lifetime. This third edition was once in the library of Rufford Abbey, an estate in Rufford, Nottinghamshire. In 1931, the estate passed to George Halifax Lumley-Savile, 3rd Baron Savile (1919-2008), who was only 12. By then, however, the Trustees had made a decision to sell the Abbey. The library and all the fittings were sold on 11 October 1938. A large ‘Rufford Abbey’ book label carries a terse reminder to wayward borrowers.
