TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Eyre & Spottiswoode, Printer Street, E.C.
Date2 March 1896
DescriptionRix responds to their memorandum of 27 February, addressed to his assistant Mr White, by explaining that volume II of the 'Catalogue of Scientific Papers' is the property of the Royal Society, as the entire back stock was presented to them by Her Majesty's Stationary Office, and was supposed to have been handed over to the Society by Eyre & Spottiswoode, as the agents to the Office for these volumes.

The stray volume, therefore, was not bound for the Society but for the Stationary Office, and as a consequence the binding will already have been paid for and should not be charged to the Society. Rix thanks them for sending the volume.
