TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to The Woodbury Type Company, Messrs Eyre & Spottiswoode, Great New Street, E.C.
Date26 September 1894
DescriptionAbout 8th or 9th April the Company sent proof of a plate for a paper by Professor [Joseph Norman] Lockyer. According to the Society's record the author never returned this proof to the Society but Lockyer cannot find it. Rix wonders if the Company has a duplicate of the proof, if not he is afraid they must have a copy pulled to send. Lockyer's long absence in Egypt caused considerable delay and Rix shall be glad of the Company's early attention to this matter.
