TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Messrs Oliver & Boyd, Edinburgh
Date6 March 1907
DescriptionSome unavoidable delay has occurred in the reply to their letter on the subject of the illustrations for the report of the 'Scotia' Antarctic Expedition. Bruce will instruct them on the number of copies of the two plates which he requires. In the present of the 'Discovery' report, it is impossible to say where there two plates will exactly come in, so that numbering them cannot yet be fixed. So the printing of these must be deferred for the present.
