TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to A G Dew Smith
Date17 February 1888
DescriptionRix lists the reasons why he is loathe to send plates for series A [of 'Philosophical Transactions'] to Cambridge, including the fact that the existing company have worked for them for many years, have completed the work to a high standard, and their location is convenient for Rix to visit. However, he notes that when there is a heavy emphasis on mathematical papers there may be scope to divide them, and he will consider this.
