TitleCopy letter from Herbert Rix, to the Cambridge Engraving Company
Date13 July 1893
Description'By this mail I send three sheets of photos illustrating a paper by Messrs [Rubert] Boyce and [A Ernest] Evans. Only the five which are initialled E.R.L are to be reproduced. I suppose you would recommend collotype for this. Kindly let me have an estimate for Proceedings ['Proceedings of the Royal Society'] plates, 1500 copies. Can collotypes go into the text? If so, that wd. [would] be preferable, & send estimate accordingly. We can supply negatives for all but one'.
