Summary:Shelley reviews the development of chemistry and medicine during the Scientific Revolution, especially the contributions of George Starkey, who had enormous influence over Robert Boyle and Isaac Newton. Starkey was reputedly the only physician in London with a cure for the Great Plague in 1665, though the details are lost.--
