TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr M Treub, Directeur van's Plantentuin, Buitenzorg, Java
Date7 November 1891
DescriptionRix records that they have received the Verslag of the Buitenzorg Garden for 1890, and so takes the opportunity to ask whether they could assist in completing the Royal Society's imperfect set of the 'Annales du Jardin Botanique de Buitenzorg'. He lists the missing numbers as Volume I; Volume II, part 1; Volume III, part 2; Volume V, part 2; and Volume VI, part 1.

Although they believe Volume I is out of print, Rix wonders if some of the others may be available for them to obtain. The most recent number they received was Volume IX, part 1, which arrived in June 1890.
