TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Dr Robert Lendlmayer von Lendenfeld
Date7 May 1888
DescriptionSuggests that Lendenfeld's letter of 30 January referred to the plates of Römmler & Jonas. Rix notes that they are alright, but it has been decided to use a paper a size larger for the text as the simplest solution to the problem. Rix is powerless to further hasten Lendenfeld's proofs, explaining that the committee are not yet content with the clip-proof and cannot go on until that is passed.
