TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Walter Noel Hartley, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date5 October 1894
DescriptionRix has just seen a representative of the Direct Photo Engraving Company about the inclosed plate. In the first place the reproduction is by collotype, secondly Hartley complains that the photographers have not been enlarged to the same scale but Rix explains that they have and no scale was furnished to the Society. The Society recommends Hartley does not enlarge the lower spectra as it is almost certain it will become very obscure should it undergo much further enlargement.

If Hartley insists on his new suggestions a new negative must be made but Rix thinks the Society should hardly be called upon to bear the expense since Hartley's original instructions do not seem to have been departed from.
