TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Herren Meisenbach Riffarth & Company, Dachauerstrasse 13-15, Munchen (Munich), Germany
Date18 November 1895
DescriptionRix accepts the amended estimate of 670 Marks for Miss Ogilvie's [Maria Gordon] drawings, but remarks that the size he has proposed to do the plates is too large, as there would be a risk of cutting the figures when trimming the plates for the volume. He encloses a specimen untrimmed proof plate, stating that the size from headline to footline is what he should follow.

Any questions relating to the reproduction of figures should be addressed directly to Miss Ogilvie, Gordon's College, Aberdeen, Scotland.
