[1] H. Dircks, A Biographical Memoir of Samuel Hartlib (1865), page 40: "Samuel Hartlib was probably not more than between fifty and sixty years of age at the time of his decease, and it is a singular circumstance that a person so distinguished as he was among a large and learned circle of society, should have died so obscurely, that the time of his decease nor even the place of his burial should have been anywhere recorded."
