Frontispiece to Sprat ‘s History of the Royal Society (1667). Engraving by Wenceslaus Hollar, design probably by John Evelyn for John Beale in about 1666-1667, and transferred to Sprat’s book later. Boyle’s revised version of the air-pump is in the centre-left background (see also figure 17). The three figures in the foreground are the president of the Royal Society, Lord Brouncker (left); the King (bust, centre, being crowned by Fame.); and Francis Bacon (right).
