TitleCopy letter from Robert Frederick William Harrison, to Dr T L Phipson
Date11 November 1905
DescriptionThanks Phipson for presenting the Royal Society with a Japanese translation of his book 'Past and Present History of the Earth's Atmosphere', of which Phipson has already presented the English edition. Fears the Japanese version of the book would be little used at the Royal Society and as they are short on space, queries if he would like it to be forwarded to a library where it will be more largely used.
