Dear Sirs


With reference to the 300 sheets of PHAROS AND PHARILLON which we are sending you and of which we only require 150 copies bound up at present, we wish to have the copies bound in a slightly different manner from the previous 600 which you did for us.


We shall want the same cover paper and the same linen back;


but the cover paper should be extended further towards the hinge of the book so that less of the linen back is exposed; also the label on the hinge of the book should be raised 3/8". We are enclosing a book which is an example of exactly the alterations we require: and we should be obliged if you would submit to us a dummy copy.


We should be very grateful if you could see your way to completing the work speedily as the books are needed urgently.


Yours faithfully | THE HOGARTH PRESS


[[*P.S. We should also like the margins above and below the rule at the top, and below the rule at the bottom of the hinge label to be reduced to the same  width as the margins on the hinge label of the enclosed book.*]]
