Date27 May 1926
DescriptionReplies with regret that no help can be given regarding Ledwich's book on Anatomy, as the Royal Society Library does not hold a copy. Suggests the Royal College of Physicians, the Medical Society or the British Museum. Suggest the British Museum for help with [Gaspare] Aselli, to find Italian biographical dictionaries. States that nothing is known of his life and none of his works have been translated. States W. R. Bett can use the Royal Society Library for reference upon a written introduction by a Fellow.
