TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Augustus Desire Waller, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date2 March 1896
DescriptionRix acknowledges receipt of Waller's gift of volume I of 'Getreidehandelspolitik', which is to be the first in a large series, but states that although it is valuable, it is ill suited to the Royal Society's library due to their concern with natural science, rather than historical and social science. As a consequence he suggests either returning it, or handing it onto another library named by Waller.
