|Description||Presentations to the Royal Society. Object types include biological specimens and portraits, with occasional instruments and medals. There are also records of manuscripts presentations, notably meteorological records and the donation of Oldenburg-Beale letters (p.2, now part of the Early Letters series). Apart from these, the bulk of Library presentations seem to be in the form of prints, maps and charts. The information is organised in three columns: date, donor, and 'name of the things given'. The manuscript is initially a fair copy, in the same hand, until 21 January 1773. Afterwards, items seem to have been added as a running list of accessions. |
The volume is largely blank, with only pp.1-16 used.
