This is not the first time in recent memory an article has been published on his subject and documented on this blog. Here is another one:

This article links to the Atlas Obscura article I previously documented. In this article the faulty scientific assumptions of the time are outlined. Wilkins, nevertheless, was a visionary of the scientific revolution.
