To many who have attended meetings and lectures at the Royal Society of Arts during the last quarter of a century, or have been connected with its management, it will seem exceedingly appropriate that this history of the society since its inception in 1754 should have been written by Sir Henry Trueman Wood, its secretary since 1879, who, during all these latter years has been so intimately associated with all its activities that the society can scarcely be thought of by anyone without his well-known, tall, and spare figure appearing simultaneously to the mental eye.
A History of the Royal Society of Arts.
By Sir Henry Trueman Wood. Pp. xvii + 558.(London: John Murray, 1913.) Price 15s. net.
