Overview

Dr Jim Bennett, Museum of the History of Science, University of Oxford

The early Royal Society was much concerned with engraving and printing - both as a technical discipline and a practical tool for illustration and publication - yet we seem to know little about the artists involved, not least with the most enduring images of the Society's early work, the plates from Hooke's 'Micrographia'.
