Early Activities of the Royal Society


DURING the past twelve months NATURE has published, week by week, a column of selected extracts from Dr. Birch's “History of the Royal Society' under the title of” 'Early Science at the Royal Society. Its commencement was the subject of an explanatory note in the issue of February 9, 1924. The series has run the allotted period, and now some kind of retrospect of the discussions, experiments, and policy of the circle of men who were the promoters of the Royal Society, and of experimental inquiry in general, may be of advantage.
