TitleCopy letter from Professor Joseph Larmor, to R T Wright, Secretary, Cambridge University Press
Date6 April 1906
DescriptionLarmor informs Wright that the Council of the Royal Society, after consideration, accept the proposals of the Cambridge University Press with regard to the printing and publication of the Royal Society Catalogue contained in Wright's letter. The Society's representative on the Central Bureau of the International Catalogue of Scientific Literature anticipates that they will be able to enlist that body's support, and that of the Smithsonian Institution in the USA, to promote the sale of the work overseas.

Larmor suggests that the University Press's officials make arrangements for the steady supply of copy and corrections to the proofs with Professor McLeod, Director of the Catalogue. They hope to have the Mathematics Index volume ready for midsummer.
