TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Eyre & Spottiswoode
Date19 October 1893
DescriptionRix notes that they have found it difficult to check Eyre & Spottiswoode's accounts as they have omitted the size of the volumes, which they usually include. If possible, he asks that they insert this information in the accounts, which Rix encloses.

He also asks why the "Obervatory" is charged at three shillings, while the "Bibliotheca Mathematica" is four shillings and four pence, when the latter is a smaller and thinner book, and both are bound in the same material.
