|Description||Plates to Phil[osophical] Trans[actions of the Royal Society] paper by Ashworth/|
With reference to this matter, you will remember you estimated (10 September) for a reproduction of these plates (800 copies) at a price of M 2000 to 2475. I am now to instruct you that we are sending you the original drawing in order that you may put the work in hand on the above estimate. I trust you will keep the cost as near the lower figure as possible. Pulling of proofs and revises will I presume not be an extra charge. You ask for a sample of our plates. I will send one of two for your guidance, but I must beg you will understand that they show nothing but the size and general style of some of our plates and are not to be taken in any way as standards of execution.'
