About this Item

Margin: 187x109 mm. Some foxing, faint soiling. Portrait of Thomas Cogan, who in 1774 co-founded with William Hawes the Society for the Recovery of Persons Apparently Drowned, later known as the Royal Humane Society. The Royal Humane Society was the first British charity established for the purpose of resuscitating the nearly drowned. Cogan spent a good part of his life in Holland, where he learned of Amsterdam's pioneering Maatschappij tot Redding van Drenkelingen (Society to Rescue People from Drowning); in 1773 he published an English adaptation of the Dutch Society's Memoirs in which he urged the British to follow Amsterdam's example.
