Caption: Caricature "Scene Royal Institution" depicting a meeting between Dalton (left) and Moll at the Royal Institution in London. John Dalton (1766-1844) was an English chemist who founded modern atomic theory. Gerrit, or Gerard, Moll (1785-1838) was a Dutch physicist and populariser of science. The picture is subtitled "Dedicated (but not) with Permission to the British Association", a reference to the scientific association founded in 1831 by scientists disillusioned by the alleged elitist and conservative attitudes of the Royal Society, the pre-eminent learned society of the time.
