Letter-Book of Henry Roscoe

Scope and Content

Although the volume is titled on the spine Letters to Sir Henry E. Roscoe, in fact it largely comprises newspaper cuttings relating to Owens College, scientific matters, Roscoe's contemporaries, and obituaries and memorial notices on the death of Roscoe. However, there are a few letters pasted in, from Charles A. Keane, Peter Paterson, J. Norman Collie and Sir Ronald Ross, all dated 1913.
