TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Commander Hepworth, Meteorological Office
Date16 May 1907
DescriptionGeikie sends thanks for Hepworth's letter of 14 and the enclosed Antarctic maps. If the Director believes the small general map is not fit for his purpose, the cut up sections of the large Geographical Society chart could be bound with the volume, removing the need for a pocket at the end. However, if this is their preference, an enquiry needs to be made at the Geographical Society requesting impressions of the relevant portions of the plates, so they may be put on fresh stones, adding the degrees of latitude and longitude along the margin, and titles added, to be printed on strong paper; the use of cut up portions of published charts would look unfinished.
