Rare Transactions of the Royal Society of Arts and Sciences, Mauritius; New Series Vol. XVII 1885, 59 pp. plus supplement and summary. Contains notes on Society Meetings, oyster culture, forestry etc. Original paper cover, contents complete. As with all of this issue, paper quality was poor, so there is some toning and foxing. Cover has faint water mark but not affecting contents. There is corner damage to the top right corner back pages, otherwise good condition. Stamp of the Royal Society on cover. Very difficult to get hold of, and rarely offered.
