London Scientific Societies

Scientific Societies .—There are many other Scientific Societies which hold their meetings in London; but only a few of them possess buildings worthy of much attention, or contain collections that would interest a mere casual visitor.  The Royal , the Astronomical , the Geological , the Chemical , and the Linnæan Societies, the College of Physicians , the Institution of Civil Engineers , and others of like kind, are those to which we here refer.  Many of these societies are at present accommodated with the use of apartments at the public expense, in Burlington House, Piccadilly.
