TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Kegan Paul, Trench Trübner & Company
Date29 April 1890
DescriptionThe Royal Society has examined the Messrs account sales and also opened and counted all the parcels of separate papers from the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. Rix lists the parcels which are short of copies and asks for a corrected statement. Apart from a clerical error which he discusses the actual monetary discrepancy is inconsiderable when the short parcels are set against the excess parcels.
