Dear Mr Blackmore,
VIRGINIA WOOLF. KEW GARDENS.
We should be much obliged if you would so kindly let us have an estimate for printing a limited edition of 500 copies of the above, alternatively on Michallet printing paper and on imitation hand made paper. Size Crown Quarto.
The text should be set in 18 pt. Caslon O. F. We should be obliged if you would kindly put this in hand at once and submit proofs; the artist will then draw in the decorations on the proofs and the blocks can then be made, either of the decorations alone, or of the decorations and the type together, whichever you consider more satisfactory.
In setting, the type should be ranged at the left side and should correspond exactly with the text as it is written on the enclosed MS.
If there is any space this should be left at the right hand side of the page. That is to say, every line must be the length of the written line in the M[anuscript]
Yours faithfully | THE HOGARTH PRESS | Manager
