Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society

In 1665 the Royal Society of London launched its Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, the world’s first journal of science. In 2015 the academic publishing industry can celebrate the 350th anniversary of this important landmark. We are marking this by inviting attendees to view the Bodleian Library’s copies of the first issue of Philosophical Transactions, which includes a copy presented to the library by Sir Christopher Wren.
