TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr E Wilson, Post Office Terrace, Cambridge
Date20 March 1895
DescriptionIn reply to Wilson's letter, the London estimate was for zinc illustrations printed on plate paper; Wilson's estimate appears to have been for lithography. It is possible that drawings might not come out well if printed in the text but the Treasurer [John Evans] thinks that zinc might be used if the Society printed on plate paper. Asks to know Wilson's view of this suggestion and what the cost would be for plates of that kind.
