TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Publication Agency, John Hopkins University, Baltimore
Date27 February 1893
DescriptionSends thanks for the parcel of dissertations recently sent. All dissertations of a scientific nature are especially valuable as the Society has a large collection of such papers and wishes to make this a special feature of the library. This does not apply however to dissertations of a purely classical or literary subject. The Library Committee has lately passed a resolution deciding not to shelve any publications of the latter nature. Those already sent can be usefully lodged in various public libraries.
