The writers were the following (or their descendants and relatives): Richard Boyle (1566-1643), first Earl of Cork; Roger Boyle (1621-1679), first Earl of Orrery; and John Boyle (d.1762), fifth Earl of Cork and Orrery. Most of the correspondence was between Boyle individuals (often a father and son), or between a Boyle and friends (such as Alexander Pope or Jonathan Swift). The appendix at the end of v. 2 includes family epitaphs, poetry, notes, etc

The battle of the books by Jonathan Swift( Book )

3 editions published between 1886 and 1908 in English and held by 62 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Inspired by Boileau's Lutrin and illustrating the debate within European intellectual circles between the "Ancients", who argued that all essential knowledge was to be found in classical texts, and the "Moderns", who claimed that contemporary learning superseded the old sources, The Battle of the Books shows Swift at his wittiest and most trenchant. In this early satire, various books in St James's Library take on a life of their own and come into conflict with one another, in a pastiche of the heroic epic genre. As well as providing humorous reflections on the nature of scholarship and education, Swift seizes the opportunity to take swipes at several authors and critics. The result is a timeless and entertaining parody by one of the most enduringly popular writers in the English language
