Abstract:

Asking for fresh proofs; discussing the publication schedule for a new edition of his An Introduction to the Knowledge of Rare and Valuable Editions of the Greek and Latin Classics; saying that he has talked the matter over with Evans and J. Payne, "and we all think and argue alike;" adding that another writer is planning to quote heavily from the edition in a catalogue that is due to be released soon, and it would be awkward if the edition itself had not yet been published; concluding "I believe there is nothing more in those volumes for myself to do. Describe me, simply, as D.D. F.R.S, member of the Royal Academy of Rouen, and of the Academy of Utrecht. A true bill."
