TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to T K Abbott, Librarian, Trinity College Dublin
Date14 December 1899
DescriptionRegarding Abbott's enquiry on the absence of Trinity College Library from the list of Institutions entitled to receive the publications of the Royal Society, the list published purports to be a list of those Societies to which the Council have granted the '[Philosophical] Transactions [of the Royal Society]' either as a gift or in exchange, but not under the copyright act. Regrets that this fact should be in any way prejudicial to Abbott's library. Fears all he can do is mention the fact, when possibly the Officers may think it proper to suggest some slight modification to the list.
