TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to George Hartley Bryan, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date[April 1902]
DescriptionEnquires if the Catalogue he refers to in his letter to Dr Joseph Larmor is not the International Catalogue of Scientific Literature, and not the Royal Society's Catalogue of Scientific Papers, which he mentioned. In the former case, Harrison will send his enquiry on to the Director of the Central Bureau of the International Catalogue. It is confusing that this work is being announced at the same time as the new volume of the Royal Society's Catalogue, which is a catalogue under authors names only, not subjects.
