TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Mr Paul Nadar, Office Général de Photographic, 53 Rue de Mathurins, Paris
Date2 January 1893
DescriptionMajor [L] Darwin has sent Rix Nadar's letter about illustrations to the reprint of his paper. The only way to obtain these illustrations is to authorise Major Harrison & Sons to send electrotypes of them, at Nadars own expense. If Nadar decides to proceed he should send the enclosed memorandum which will serve as authority from the Society. This would probably cost Nadar less than obtaining them from the 'Photographic News'.
