TitleCopy letter from A H White, to Professor Hellmann, Berlin
Date16 August 1897
DescriptionBefore sending Hellmann the Norman-Borough's work White thought they ought to inform Hellmann that in the Society's library this work occurs bound in two separate portions, each forming part of a volume of tracts in quarto. One volume contains the portion by Norman 'The New Attractive', the other Borough's 'Discourse of the Variation of the Compasse'. It is the latter part which Hellmann asks for but White queries if he wishes for both as Borough's work should properly be subjoined to Norman's.
