TitleTring Museum: in-letters
DescriptionThe series consists of the letters received by Lord Rothschild and his two curators, Ernst Hartert and Karl Jordan, relating to the Zoological Museum, Tring. Letters relate to the buildings, their furniture and services, to the acquisition and shipping of specimens for the Museum and books for the library, to the preparation and publication of papers in Novitates Zoologicae and of separate monographs, to scientific research matters, particularly in entomology and ornithology, and to visits from friends, acquaintances and total strangers. Of particular interest are letters from Rothschild's collectors, who operated all over the world, often in unexplored and inhospitable places. Artists and illustrators are also well represented among the writers.

Originally labelled as 'Rothschild Correspondence'.
