Abstract

Although consistently recognized as desirable by both the Royal Society and the Académie des Sciences, translations of "Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society" were only infrequently undertaken officially. More successful were some private attempts, which by the end of the eighteenth century had produced a virtually complete translation, albeit only of Lowthorp's abridgements.
