Selected Readings, No 71

June 15, 1999

"In this Work, when it shall be found that much is omitted, let it not be forgotten that much likewise is performed." -- Samuel Johnson

 Greetings! Selected Readings is compiled and edited by Kevin Berland, with the able assistance of the Volunteer Fire Brigade, viz., Jack Lynch and A.J. Wright, not to mention the ever-present company of the Man in the Funny Hat, the Operator of the Moderately Elegant Machines, Blue Distance Woman (whose mysterious gravitational pull cannot be explained or denied),and the Secret Admirer (not all that secret, really). And so forth.

 What kinds of things make it into the bibliography? Good question! Please see the explanations and caveats on the Selected Readings Modus Operandi Page.

 Websites are indicated by the blue whirly thing at the beginning of the entry. All links given in this issue were operational on the publication date; if you're visiting in the future (relatively speaking) we cannot ensure the links will still be operational.

 Please note that there will be a hiatus in production of Selected Readings; the next issue, No. 72, is not scheduled to appear until September.

 Contributions of new bibliographical materials are always welcome.

As if filthy streets, impoverished beggars, pickpockets, thieves, and prostitutes everywhere weren't enough of an eyesore, the mutilated bodies of young women start turning up around Covent Garden.To Sir John Fielding, a blind magistrate, the crimes are an abomination; he sets out to trap the killer with the help of his assistant, young Jeremy Proctor. In addition to a fine mystery, author Bruce Alexander offers up a fascinating guided tour of 18th-century London, from the precincts of the Bow Street Runners to the shadowy haunts of criminals. In the characters of Sir John and Jeremy, we are gifted with the voices of experience and innocence--a potent combination in so murky a venue].

Jeremy receives an education not only in the law but in the ways of the sea, and in the nature of seafaring men. In the lusty street world adjoining the Portsmouth docks the lad is nearly press-ganged, and learns first hand the roughness of naval life and naval justice.]

Ashgate, 1998. 296 pp. ISBN -84014-282-0 [Based almost entirely upon the extensive and hitherto little-researched manuscript archive of Samuel Hartlib, it charts and contextualizes the personal and intellectual history of Johann Moriaen (c.1592-1668), a Dutch-German alchemist and natural philosopher. Moriaen was closely acquainted with many of the leading thinkers and experimenters of his time, including René Descartes, J.A. Comenius, J.R. Glauber and J.S. Küffler. His detailed reports of relations with these figures and his response to their work provide a uniquely informed insight into the world of alchemy and natural philosophy. This study also illuminates the nature and mechanisms of intellectual and technological exchanges between Germany, the Netherlands and England].
