John Dalton


We have a small but interesting collection of material relating to the great scientist and mathematician John Dalton (1766-1844), who spent much of his adult life in Manchester and was an enthusiastic supporter of Chetham’s Library, declaring ‘there is in this town a large library, furnished with the best books in every art, science and language, which is open to all, gratis’.
