TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Herr P Jacobson, General Secretar de Deutsche Chemische Gesellschaft
Date16 November 1896
DescriptionIn Jacobson's circular letter addressed to the Verlagsbuchhandlung der Royal Society, he informs the Society of the purchase of the 'Chemische Zentralblatt' by the Deutsche Chemische Gesellschaft and asks if the Society are disposed to exchange its 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' against that journal.

The Royal Society already sends the Deutsche Chemische Gesellschaft both its 'Proceedings' and 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' series A, quarto. Under the circumstances Harrison asks if the Deutsche Chemische Gesellschaft could not supply the Society with the 'Chemische Zentralblatt' as well as the 'Chemische Berichte', which the Society already receives.
