TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Eyre & Spottiswode
Date14 March 1887
DescriptionIt is the intention of the Officers of the Royal Society to place the binding of the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' in cloth cases in the hands of Messrs Harrison & Sons, the Society's printers. As Messrs Eyre & Spottiswode are doing this for the Society at something near to cost price, Rix does not think it will make much practical difference in the amount of the Messrs annual binding account. The binding of books for the library remains in Eyre & Spottiswode's hands.
