TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Editor of 'Nature'
Date20 June 1888
DescriptionRix has just heard from Dr Michael Foster of another change with Professor Kühne's figures, which are to be woodcuts in text after all. The cuts are in progress, and he can have clichés of them in anticipation of the leave of Council, but Foster hopes that he will send a formal request which may be presented to Council at their next meeting. Rix asks if he should order the clichés at once, or if it will be too late for them to be of use.

A postscript notes that they are not being done by their usual firm, but by the Cambridgeshire Scientific Instrument Company.
