TitleLetter from Walter White, to George Gabriel Stokes, on a paper 'Description of some remains of the gigantic land-lizard (Megalania prisca, Owen), from Australia.—Part II' by Richard Owen
Date28 July 1880
DescriptionCost for the lithography will be £20 for the four plates. One plate has a note indicating reduction in size, which will affect the price.

Another unnamed paper by William Kitchen Parker [possibly 'On the structure and development of the skull in sturgeons (Acipenser ruthenus and A. sturio)', RR/8/247], could possibly be named Part I, so as there would be no hindrance to further installments.

Subject: Zoology, Palaeontology

[Published in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society, 1880]
