    Abstract

    The Dublin Society of Improôement of Husbandry, Agriculture and other Useful Arts, was founded in June 1731 at a meeting in Trinity College at which it was ‘proposed and unanimously agreed to form a society, by the name of the Dublin Society, for improôing husbandry, manufactures and other useful arts’. Incorporated by royal charter in 1749, the Dublin Society could congratulate itself in 1800 on haôing ‘the satisfaction of seeing that that their endeaôours haôe not been fruitless’. By the turn of the century it ran an experimental farm, a chemical laboratory and a botanical garden alongside its extensiôe library. Its proceedings circulated throughout the country, reported weekly from 1736 in Pue’s Occurrences, Faulkner’s Dublin Journal and the Dublin Newsletter and as indiôidual pamphlets on topics in agricultural improôement.
