TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to Messrs Harrison & Sons
Date4 November 1893
DescriptionRix is sorry that he has to complain about the printing of some blocks for 'Proceedings of the Royal Society' number 327. In particular, pages 204, 246, 247, 248, 250, and 279 are not of the same standard as the proofs received from the engravers, which Rix has been informed were fair copies taken with a roller. He believes that proper attention was not paid to cleaning the blocks, and notes that it is especially discouraging when they pay extra to have the blocks done well, to have both the expense and the work thrown away.
