The Academy of Mathematics, the seed for our modern-day academy, was created in 1582 no less, during the reign of Felipe II, and it has had a long history since then. The current academy was founded on 25 February 1847, during the reign of Isabel II. It is now located in the centre of Madrid, near the Plaza de Callao.
Nowadays, it is a public academy dedicated to the study and research of mathematics, physics, chemistry, biology, engineering and other sciences, and it is integrated into the Institute of Spain. It has a library containing over 27,000 volumes and diverse material such as scientific magazines, manuscripts and maps. Its collection comes from acquisitions by the Academy itself, exchanges and private donations, amongst which we can highlight those made by José Echegaray, Fernando de Castro and the Juan March Foundation.
