TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Cambridge Scientific Instrument Company
Date6 May 1887
DescriptionRix herewith encloses a letter from Harry Marshall Ward. The four plates Rix today returns together with a parcel of drawings from Professor [Robert Ignatz Lendlmayr von] Lendenfeld. Rix asks the Messrs to carry out as far as possible Ward's suggestions. The numbers of Ward's plates are 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' 1887, B, 10-13. Professor Foster wishes for an estimate of Lendenfeld's drawings. The Messrs have seen the specimen of Werner and Winter's work, which is the style Lendenfeld approves.
