Two drawn plans of Gresham College in the City of London as it appeared in the 18th Century. The college was founded by the successful businessman and diplomat Thomas Gresham in 1579. The Royal Society for the Advancement of Natural Sciences met there until 1710. When the building was demolished in 1768, the lectures of the Royal Society continued in a room above the Royal Exchange.
