TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to N Seberry, care of Messrs Frazar & Company, 65 Wall Street, New York, United States of America
Date29 October 1902
DescriptionIs afraid he cannot help much in Seberry's enquiry regarding the publishers and prices of the four publications on Dr Boole which Seberry quotes. The Society does not possess copies of them but does have a collection of his manuscript papers on mathematics and logic. Suggests Seberry apply to any large London bookseller or perhaps Queen's College, Cork. Mr Walter Scott, 94 Boswell Street, Liverpool, has worked much on Boole's paper and might very likely be able to give the information required.
