TitleCopy letter from Archibald Geikie, Horace Hart, to University Press, Oxford
Date27 May 1913
DescriptionSending a photograph of the tables which might be made into a block that could be printed with the text on page 46 of the Memorial volume of the Royal Society's Celebration. It is not worth making into a separate plate and would be most appropriately inserted in the text. Enquires if it would come out distinctly enough as a process-block.

Also sending the original block which was used in the illuminated invitation card, but which of course had the addition of crimson and gold. Enquires if it would print satisfactorily in the text on the paper used, or if not, could a leaf of another paper be used on the certain pages instead.
