Elwes, Henry John, 1846-1922 (traveller and botanist)
Found in 4 Collections and/or Records:
Elwes asks Ewart to send one of his papers to Collett at the Zoological Museum, Christiana (Oslo), to remind him about an enquiry Elwes received concerning the races of sheep on the islands of the Norwegian coast, from which it has been supposed that the Shetland or Soay stock originated.
Elwes recommends that Ewart visits the public abattoirs in Marseilles on his way to Monaco, where sheep from parts of Algeria and the south of France are seen. Hartert, superintendent of the Rothschild museum, is likely to be at Monaco and he may be able to tell Ewart something about the sheep in Algeria and southern France.
