  • This piece will end up with substantial linking, often to parts of the w:Wikipedia:WikiProject History of Science. Some of the necessary lks may not exist yet.
  • The Isis article contained considerable notes - some of this material may be useful.
  • Stimson believes author to be w:Joseph Glanvill, "a well-known writer of the seventeenth century" and "an intimate friend of Francis Willoughby, already one of the fellows" of w:Gresham College.
  • Stimson dates the ballad to 1663.
