TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Werner and Winter, Engravers, Frankfurst
Date28 July 1893
Dear Sir,
Enclosed herewith please find two coloured plates. Have the goodness to send me an estimate for reproducing them in colour for the Proceedings of the Royal Society. I enclose an old proof-plate by way of pattern, as to size &c. The estimate is to include plate-paper and lettering, and is to be for 1500 copies of each plate.
I am, yours faithfully
Herbert Rix
Asst. Sec. R.S. [Assistant Secretary, Royal Society]

I am afraid plate 2 is too full. The figures must be brought nearer together'.
