TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Professor Harold Baily Dixon, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date28 September 1892
DescriptionRix believes Lord Rayleigh [John William Strutt] has written to Dixon to say that Dixon's paper is to be printed in the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]'. Rix is obtaining estimates for the figures. The curves can be done as woodcuts in the text if only the large squares are to be shown. If the small squares must be shown, they cannot be reduced, and must be plates. Rix asks for Dixon's wishes, cuts of course being considerably cheaper.
