Date23 February 1891
DescriptionFoster reports that among the books presented to the Royal Society by the late Henry Bowman Brady there is a copy of Soldani's 'Testaceographiae ac Zoophytographiae'. As the Society already possess a copy of this rare work, and there is a memorandum by Brady noting his wish for the Society, in accepting his gift, to offer one of the copies to the Natural History Museum, Foster asks Flower to accept the copy.
