TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Dulau & Company
Date18 July 1893
DescriptionRix refers to their order for Wundt's 'Philosophical Studies', with the idea that they could obtain the back copies secondhand. If it is not possible to locate secondhand copies, he asks that Dulau & Company let them know what the set would cost to date, and how much more is likely to appear.

Rix notes that Czapeki's 'Theorie der optischen Instrumente' is also due to them, having been ordered on 3 May 1893. He also asks what is the latest edition of Dana's Mineralogy and its price, and the prices of Broca's 'Collected Papers' and Buck's 'Reference Handbook of Medical Sciences'.
