TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to M le Secrétaire, École pratique des hautes études, Paris
Date27 June 1895
DescriptionAcknowledges receipt of the series of the École's Bibliotheque. The publication though exceedingly valuable in itself has no very direct bearing upon the studies exclusively pursued at the Royal Society, namely those of experimental science and as the library is now getting inconveniently over-crowded, they have decided with great regret to ask the École not to continue to send these publications.
