    Excerpt from The Prospectus, Charter, Ordinances and Bye-Laws of the Royal Institution of Great Britain: Together With Lists of the Proprietors and Subscribers; And an Appendix

    These are the chief causes which prevent the advancement and reception of valuable inventions already made; and they operate also against 'the production of such as might be made by ingenious men, if they were not discouraged by such impe diments. But there is another serious obstacle, which is pro duced even by the ¿ourishing condition of society, resulting from those very improvements. From the subdivision of labour which naturally takes place where active industry and the security of my are established, it happens that almost every man hecon'nes confined to some appropriate occupation; seldom regarding, or even knowing what may be the processes or operations to which the material of his trade may be sub jected, before or after it passes through his hands: still less does he know what is performed in other branches of trade and ma nufacture. The acquisition of wealth almost totally engages the attention of individuals thus employed. Hence those vain pre tensions to superior excellence;-that scorn of improvement because improvement supposes previous imperfection -and those earnest endeavours at secrecy and monopoly: in addition to which there is a natural fear of risque, which deters men from entering upon new undertakings, of which they are not qualified6 massacres or rm.
