About this book

The subject of this study is the Zoological Gardens of the Zoological Society of London, founded in 1826. The aim is to analyse what the Gardens signified as a recreational, educational and scientific institution in London by considering them from four different perspectives: as part of a newly-founded scientific society, as part of the leisure culture of mid-Victorian London, as a mediator of popular zoology and as a constituent of the Zoological Society's scientific ambitions.
