TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to W J Haggerston, Public Library, New Bridge Street, Newcastle upon Tyne
Date10 March 1888
DescriptionRix states that no index to 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society' has been published since that for volumes 111-120. He also advises that Haggerston delay his purchase until after the Royal Society has finished their review of the list of institutions who receive their publications for free, as his library is one of those under consideration as a possible addition.
