113 Originally intended to address similar concerns to the Geologi- 32 Regionalizing Science cal Society – particularly geology, mineralogy, engineering and agriculture – it became increasingly focused on natural history and antiquarianism. 116 The Institution set out to achieve these through a variety of means – from the establishment of a museum to the holding of bazaars – that will be discussed in Chapter 2. 117 Like the Geological Society in Penzance, the RIC was a socially elitist body. The majority of its Presidents during the nineteenth century were landed and titled.

He first met Borlase during a tour of Cornwall in 1746 when Borlase introduced him to the study of minerals and fossils. He went on to be one of the most influential natural historians in eighteenth-century Britain, publishing a number of books on zoology, including British Zoology and the History of Quadrupeds. 36 Many of the plants in his possession had been collected and identified by her. Borlase certainly needed the help, as botany and zoology were never his strong suit, a situation he blamed on his isolation.

First-class members could be Officers and Committee Members of the Society, second-class members could only sit on the Society’s Committee, and have a voice in all of its discussions, whilst a third class subscription simply guaranteed admission to exhibitions. The Society was therefore much more open in terms of the financial conditions of entry (if not in terms of its moral conditions) and this was reflected in the number of people who joined – by 1842 the Society had 184 subscribers. The RCHS ceased to function in 1861; its ultimate failure blamed, perversely, on its own success – the promotion of local Cottage Garden Societies.
