TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to The Reverend Frederick John Jervis Smith, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date5 June 1908
DescriptionIs sorry to say that there is very little of Torricelli among the Library's collection. There appears to be no manuscripts of his, or anything under his name in the early 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. There is an edition of 'Opera Geometrica, 1644' which Harrison will send down to him.
