Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. John Beale (c.1608-1683) was an English clergyman, scientific writer, and early Fellow of the Royal Society. He contributed to John Evelyn's Sylva, or A Discourse of Forest-Trees and the Propagation of Timber, and was an influential author on orchards and cider. He was also a member of the Hartlib Circle. He was born in Yardley, Herefordshire, a nephew of Sir William Pye, attorney in the court of wards. He was educated at King's College, Worcester by Henry Bright, who is thought to have nurtured his early study of Erasmus, and then at Eton College, before going to King's College, Cambridge in 1629.show more
