Example text

Evelyn prefaced the Instructions with a dedication to Lord Clarendon, patron of the recently established Royal Society, in which he praised the Baconian principles of the new ‘philosophic assembly’. Though at first glance misdirected, Evelyn’s evocation of the Royal Society in a treatise on libraries was by no means inappropriate. Naud´e was an indefatigable supporter of the novatores in natural philosophy, and in the Instructions he repeatedly quoted Bacon in support of modern learning. Naud´e’s Baconianism is more than evident in Evelyn’s translation.

The Spectator (Oxford, 1965), vol. 1, 44 [Spectator, 10–12 March 1711], quoted in L. E. Klein, ‘Making philosophy worldly in the London periodical about 1700’, in J. Marino and M. W. ), Perspectives on early modern and modern intellectual history: essays in honor of Nancy S. Struever (Rochester, NY, 2001), 404. 46 The sentiment, of course, is unadulterated Bacon. Yet if the library could exhibit all the symptoms of the ills of the period, so too was it considered part of the cure. Together with William Oldys, Johnson had compiled in 1743 the prodigious sale catalogue of the printed books of the Harleian Library.

Bentley, A proposal for building a Royal Library, and establishing it by Act of Parliament (London, 1697), in A. T. : a bibliography (Cambridge, 1908), 95. See Evelyn to Bentley, 25 December 1697, promising support for the proposal, Diary and correspondence, vol. 4, 14–15. 43 Naud´e, Instructions, 10–11. 33 The expansion of book collections 1640–1750 number of books in the library of the bishop of Ely (apparently 30,755, including manuscripts) and in the ‘Kings Library as in the Time when the Catalogue was made’, some 9,289, and later, ‘if I have counted them rightly’, a moderately increased figure of 9,989.
