TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to J B Chandler, Fellow of the Linnean Society
Date24 November 1888
Description'Dear Sir,
The volume of Phil. Trans. ['Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'] which you name is very rare, and we do not let it leave the house even for the use of our own Fellows. I do not know whether the Linnean Society has it, & if so, whether they lend it. We have no copy for sale.
Yours faithfully,
Herbert Rix
Asst Sec RS [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
