TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Joseph Thomas Cunningham, The Laboratory, Citadel Hill, Plymouth
Date16 February 1894
DescriptionRix reports, in reference to his letter of 14 February and Cunningham's of 15 February, that he had misunderstood the pinters and the matter is more difficult than he supposed. It appears that although only a portion of the edition has been bound, the whole edition has been trimmed and stitched, meaning they can only alter the plates by hand. Cunningham will see from the enclosed note, that they will insist that this be done if he thinks it of sufficient importance.
