TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to William Napier Shaw, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date9 January 1907
DescriptionOnly some of Royd's illustrations have been returned in proof, and of these only one that can serve Shaw's purpose. It has been so long since Geikie done any modelling that he fears he could be of little assistance. He used to work with modelling clay, which is more convenient material than putty, except it must be kept moist until the model is finished.
