Detailed Product Description
Here is a brief history of the Royal Geographical Society as given on their website:
 
"The early history of the Society enshrines such famous names as Livingstone, Stanley, Scott, Shackleton, Hunt and Hillary – and is, in fact, the history of British Geography, exploration and discovery. Information, maps, charts and knowledge gathered on expeditions was sent to the RGS.
 
The Society was also pivotal in establishing Geography as a teaching and research discipline in British universities, and funded the first Geography positions in the Universities of Oxford and Cambridge. The Society published its first journal in 1832 and from 1855, accounts of meetings and other matters were published in the Society Proceedings. In 1892, this was replaced by the Geographical Journal which is still published today.
 
The Geographical Society of London was founded in 1830 as an institution to promote the advancement of geographical science. Like many learned societies, it had started as a dining club in London, where select members held informal dinner debates on current scientific issues and ideas. Under the patronage of King William IV, it later became known as the Royal Geographical Society and was granted its Royal Charter under Queen Victoria in 1859.
 
From 1830 - 1840 the RGS met in the rooms of the Horticultural Society in Regent Street, London and from 1854 -1870 at 15 Whitehall Place, London. In 1870, the Society finally found a home when it moved to 1 Saville Row, London – an address that quickly became associated with adventure and travel. A new impetus was given to the Society’s affairs in 1911, with the election of Earl Curzon, the former Viceroy of India, as the Society’s President (1911-1914). The premises in Saville Row were sold and the present site, Lowther Lodge in Kensington Gore, was purchased and opened for use in April 1913. In the same year the Society’s ban on women was lifted."
