TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, Assistant Secretary of the Royal Society; to Lieutenant J. A. Rupert-Jones
Date17 July 1917
DescriptionInforms Lieutenant J. A. Rupert-Jones that old Parts of the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society' are not easy to be had, as many are out of print and those that are obtainable are very expensive. Notes that the best course would be to look for the volumes required in a large library. Notes that for Lieutenant J. A. Rupert Jones the best options would be either Edinburgh's Advocates' Library, the University of Edinburgh's Library or the Royal Society of Edinburgh's Library.
