The Press on the Loan Collection

Nature volume 14, pages 4143 | Download Citation



THE opening of the Loan Collection of Scientific Apparatus has been accompanied by unanimous approval on the part of the London daily press, and of those weekly papers that have yet noticed it. This approval must be all the more gratifying to the wellwishers of science, and especially to those gentlemen by whose efforts the collection has been organised and arranged, that it is in all cases intelligently expressed. All the notices of the collection that we have seen show a fair appreciation of its great value, its purpose, and its significance, and we believe, without exception, they express a hope that it will be followed by a permanent collection, in the form of a Science Museum. On another page we give some account of the successful and altogether gratifying visit of the Queen on Saturday last, as well as the proceedings since, and here we think it will serve a good purpose to bring together public opinion on the collection, so far as that has yet been uttered through the press.
