Though the exact size of his network is far from clear, at his death there were as many as 10,000-14,000 letters or register copies. A full reckoning of his extant and lost letters has not been undertaken. ^ For purposes of comparison, I have plotted Peiresc’s published letters, which shows some 3200 letters for the years 15981637 [Fig.

The binding o f the Boulliau and Peiresc volumes presents some confusion.
