Letter from The Hogarth Press to Kimble and Bradford (29/03/1938)



[[MS 2750/565/21]]



Dear Mr. Bradford,


March 29th 1938


Woolf: NIGHT & DAY


We have pleasure in accepting your estimate of March 26th for reproducing 3,000 copies of this book, and I enclose a copy of the first edition for photographing, with a copy of the Uniform Edition as a pattern. You will see that the page of the first edition is larger, and will have to be reduced. If this affects your estimate, will you let me know?


I find that Grosvenor Chater have not the necessary size (37 1/2 x 58) in stock, but they are making 25 1/2 reams and will deliver the making to you about Thursday of next week - April 7th. I enclose a piece of the dummy for comparison when delivery is made to Northampton.


With regard to the preliminary matter, the Uniform Edition is to be taken as a pattern, but new copy is inserted for the page facing title, and the new imprint (as for COLLECTED POEMS by Day Lewis, which you have in hand) is to be used on the title-page. There is an addition and an alteration to the bibliography.


I know that Northampton will take great care of the first edition, and we should be most grateful if you would ask them to re-bind it when it is finished with.


Yours sincerely, | Manager, | THE HOGARTH PRESS.


W. E. Bradford Esq., 
Messrs. Kimble & Bradford.
