TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Dr Charles Chree, [Fellow of the Royal Society]
Date6 November 1907
DescriptionGeikie thanks Chree for his letter and the roll of curves, which he received that morning, and promises to communicate with him once he has carefully studied the matter. Meanwhile, he asks that Chree estimate the number of plates or sheets of curves he proposes to have engraved so that they may form an idea of the probable expense of engraving. The use of more than one colour ink would notably increase the cost, but would increase clarity, so he will enquire with the Treasurer to establish how much they may spend on illustration.
