'God bless the Microscope: let us have a Society'

A Very Brief History of the Royal Microscopical Society #1

A quick note: the title of this post is perhaps a bit false - this post will actually only give a brief history of the founding of the Microscopical Society of London. The Microscopical Society of London was the original name of what is now known as the Royal Microscopical Society. I hope to do a number of posts about the society, which is a very important learned society founded to promote, microscopical investigation, and for the introduction and improvement of the Microscope as a scientific instrument [1].
