Facsimile of Volume I, Number 1 (March 3, 1853) through No. 19 [June 30, 1854]. 234 pages, with no photographs, but a number of diagrams, reflecting the Society's prevailing interest in the science; few people had cottoned onto the art in the 1850s, although Sir William Newton had postulated a separate "path" for the emerging field. While you wouldn't think the minutes and correspondence of a Royal Society could do anything but help you doze off, consider that these men, for they were nearly all men, were in at the beginning, and were explorers in their way. This copy in near-Fine hardcover binding with light wear to corners and spine ends.
