Scope and Content

Minute book of a sub-committee appointed by the Society "to enquire into the laws, regulations and management of similar Societies in the United Kingdom, with a view to comparing them with this Institution..." The Committee was appointed in 1836 to investigate how the bodies regulated access to their collections by non-members. The committee sent a circular letter to several natural history societies; and copies of their replies are included in this volume. The Committee's report was approved in 1837.
