TitleVolume 1, 1740-1765 - scientific and administrative letters sent to the Royal Society, its President or Officers
DescriptionLetters sent to the Royal Society, its President or Officers. Subject matter is both domestic and scientific. Domestic concerns include administrative matters such as instructions from authors on the publication of papers. The letters on scientific topics appear to be those which were considered of small significance, e.g. giving notice of minor inventions, or appealing to the Society for recognition, rather than those containing theories, research or observations. Arranged alphabetically by author.
Extent1 volume containing 49 items
Physical descriptionPhase boxed. Bound volume with green paper covered boards and gold-tooled, red leather spine labels.
NotesLetters to Sir Joseph Banks catalogued with reference to 'The Banks Letters: A Calendar of the manuscript correspondence of Sir Joseph Banks preserved in the British Museum, British Museum (Natural History) and other collections in Great Britain', ed. Warren Dawson, London, 1958.
