TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Direction des Ponts et Chaussées, Paris
Date12 July 1889
DescriptionAsks it would be possible, by gift or exchange, for the Library of the Royal Society to obtain the 'Annales des Ponts et Chaussées'. They currently have the ten volumes of the first series, 1831-1840, and aside from a few exceptions from January 1881, have no more Annals, so wish to obtain the missing numbers and continue recieving them from now onwards.

Rix suggests that as the publications of the Royal Society may be interest to them, they might be happy to agree to an exchange.
