TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Charles Davies Sherborn, Natural History Museum
Date31 December 1890
DescriptionAs Sherborn suggested at interview, his subjects are geology and related matters, and zoology in all its branches. The list Rix has sent is supposed to be complete but the Committee would be glad of any suggestions of series to add. All suggestions must however be sanctioned by the Committee before Sherbon begins to work on them. To facilitate Sherborn making any such suggestions Rix sends, as requested, the two lits of serials which have already been catalogued [not attached].
