TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Secretary, Gesellschaft zur Forderung deutscher Wissenschaft, Kunst u. Literatur in Bohmen, Prague, Bohemia
Date15 January 1896
DescriptionRix acknowledges receipt of Dr Neuwirth's publication, along with the other books in the parcel, but notes that although the book is valuable and beautifully illustrated, as it does not fall within the mathematical and natural science focus of the Royal Society, it would be wasted should it remain with them. They would be happy to receive any publications related to natural science, but not those dealing with art or literature.

He asks if they would prefer that it be returned to them, or that the Royal Society send it on to a relevant society such as the Royal Academy of Arts or the Society of Antiquaries.
