This is a reprinted version of the publication entitled 'Extracts from a correspondence with the Academies of Vienna & St. Petersgurg' published in 1802. [15/3575]. According to the edition of Academic Annals published in 1805, [p.4] the RA Council resolved on 21st February 1804 that “the ensuing numbers of his [i.e. Prince Hoare's] Publication should be issued by the Authority of the Royal Academy, under the title Academic Annals, (the two former Numbers [published in 1802 and 1803] being reprinted under the same title)..”. This reprinted edition differs from the earlier edition by the inclusion of an Errata and Lists of Members of the Royal Academy of Arts 1801 and 1802 at the end.
