The book about which you write is of no great rarity. We have several copies, and do not care to make an offer. If, however, it contains a frontispiece representing Fame crowning the head of Charles II, Founder of the Society, the copy is of more value, and we might purchase. I do not gather from your note that your copy contains this frontispiece.
I am, yours faithfully,
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]'.
