Collection of eleven separate tracts including two of Boyle's 'major contributions to physical science' on magnetism and electricity, the latter being the first work on the subject in English. This is the second issue book with a 1676 cancel title page and collates complete except for the single leaf of 'Directions for the Book-binder' that was inserted after the title page. Each of the tracts has separate signatures and pagination and all are dated 1676 except that on magnetism. The title page as been repaired around the edges with book tape and bears a nineteenth century ownership signature of 'Robert Rock' who later reveals himself to be resident at '225 Stone Street Newcastle Upon Tyne' and M.A Rock in Armagh, northern Ireland. The text is browned throughout; there is light wear to the corners of the first and last few leaves. The book has been recently recased in robust marbled paper over modern pasteboards with new endpapers giving the book a new lease of life.
