DescriptionThe Royal Society is not prepared to make a grant of £50 towards the completion of the publication of his monograph on 'The Relation of Phyllotaxis to Mechanical Laws'. The grant is conditional on the work being undertaken by Messrs Williams and Norgate, to be issued in a book. It is not though effective for it to be printed as a new separate part in a paper. They propose to make the offer of £50 direct to Williams and Norgate, payable on completion of the work.
