TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Messrs Friedländer & Sohn
Date14 December 1908
DescriptionIt appears from their stock list that Messrs Friedländer & Sohn have in their possession copies of each of the series of papers by Prof Karl Pearson on the mathematical theory of evolution. The Royal Society society have had an application from a government office for copies and therefore Harrison asks for them to arrange to send all the copies they have in stock to the Royal Society, so that they can store those not immediately wanted.
