TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, to Dr [James Hartley] Ashworth, [Fellow of the Royal Society], The University of Edinburgh
Date22 July 1908
DescriptionStates the title of his paper 'On the Giant Nerve Cells and Fibres of the Halla parthenopeia', which presumably is being published subject to amendments regarding illustrations. The Royal Society's limit is £40, and Geikie understands that he is in a position to obtain an extra £50 from outside sources, if the work is put in the hands of Messrs Werner and Wintner of Frankfurt. If their estimate does not exceed £90, the work shall be sent straight away.
