TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to C E Pollak, 27 Belsize Avenue, N.W.
Date31 January 1905
DescriptionIn answer to Pollak's enquiry about the table of veins, arteries et cetera which John Evelyn presented to the Society's museum in 1667, the Society has no knowledge of such tables still being in existence. The collection in the 'museum' of the Society was transferred to the new British Museum about 1760, and possibly the table may have gone with the collections, but it does not appear to be quoted in the printed catalogue of the Society's museum of 1686.
