Descripción

All three letters good, on lightly aged paper. Close's first letter (12mo, 2 pp): He is pleased to hear 'that Professor O. T. Jones is convalescent and back at work'. Close will write to him to ask if he will take part in the 'Commission' on the 'Terrasses littorales'. Having none 'handy', he is writing to the Admiralty Hydrographer for a 'list of Admiralty Charts'. The Closes have 'settled to take a house in Jersey for the children's holidays', so there is 'little chance of our being at Oxford for the British Association meeting'. 'It is very hard to find a small house in this neighbourhood.' Close's second letter (12mo, 1 p, in stamped, addressed, postmarked envelope): He is sending on the Admiralty charts from 'Captain Douglas, the Hydrographer'. 'You will see from the enclosed that you can keep the Catalogue. I hope that you will find in it what you want.' Douglas's letter (4to, 1 p): 'In this Catalogue [not present] will be found an Alphabetical list as well as a Geographical list of Charts, and in the end of the Cantalogue Index maps showing, amongst others, Charts of the Mediterranean: there will also be found an Index map of the Sailing Directions. I do not think I can do better than let him have this Catalogue, which he is quite at liberty to retain for future reference.'. N° de ref. de la librería 6423
