TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to M le Secritaire des Facultes de Lille
Date17 January 1899
DescriptionHave received a parcel of Publications of the facultes de Lille courtesy of the Secretaire. The Library of the Royal Society is compelled to limit its library books on the natural sciences. Some of the books sent are therefore of no use and asks whether they should be returned or distributed to other libraries. Also suggests that they only send memoirs which relate strictly to the natural sciences.
