The Nature of the World: The Yorkshire Philosophical Society 1822-2000 [soft back] Author: David Rubinstein

The Nature of the World is a major contribution to the history of the scientific and cultural life of Yorkshire, demonstrating the part played by an influential provincial organisation in the development of the study of the natural sciences and antiquities in the 19th century and beyond. In this meticulously researched, well-illustrated and entertaining account David Rubinstein brings to life the personalities, not always working in harmony, who contributed so much to the achievements of a still-flourishing society that has provided a lasting legacy for all in the Yorkshire Museum and Gardens.
