BOYLE'S ESSAYS ON PHYSICS ETC. 1690. BOYLE, ROBERT. An Essay of the Great Effects of Even Languid and Unheeded Motion. Whereunto is Annexed An Experimental Discourse of some little Observed Causes of the Insalubrity and Salubrity of the Air and its Effects. By the Honourable Robert Boyle, Fellow of the Royal Society. London, sold by Sam. Smith, 1690.
8vo. 168 x 104 mm. (8), 123, (5 blank), (7, 1 blank), 76, 51-113, (1 blank), 129-158 pp. Worn near contemporary calf, spine missing, front board loose. A few minor stains. Owner's signature of M. A. Riben on title.

Second edition, after the 1685 first. Boyle hypothezises thermodynamic principles and assumes heat to be the effect of tiny particles in "local motion", concepts that didn't take hold until another hundred years. The part of the book titled "...Insalubrity and Salubrity of the Air..." is an attempt to explain the causes of the plague.
