TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Waterloo & Sons, London Wall
Date31 October 1892
DescriptionRix asks if the Messrs have the letter books of the Japanese paper quoted in their letter of 25 October ready-made. If so Rix queries the cost of a letter book 17 by 11 inches, and how this price compares with that of the books the Society has generally used made from ordinary copy paper of the same size. If they do not sell ready made Rix wonders what the price of a book half calf, cloth sides, of the same size, would be.
