Michael Hunter is Emeritus Professor of History at Birkbeck, University of London, and a Fellow of the British Academy. From 2006 to 2009 he was director of the AHRC-funded British Printed Images to 1700 project which produced the website www.bpi1700.org.uk; a volume that he edited stemming from the conferences that the project organised was published in 2010 as Printed Images in Early Modern Britain: Essays in Interpretation (Ashgate). As well as working on the frontispiece to Sprat’s History of the Royal Society, he is also studying the book illustration projects of Richard Blome and John Ogilby. Another current research topic is ‘the decline of magic’, an article on which is forthcoming in the Historical Journal, and he continues to be interested in Robert Boyle, his biography of whom appeared in 2009.
