I have to thank you for your estimate for this book and am glad to approve it with one alteration. I have after all decided not to have the book bound in fancy or marble cloth, and I shall be obliged if you will bind it in Art Vellum Quality R Col [?] 118 (as shown in the other small book of patterns which you recently sent us to keep here). I suppose that this will effect some saving on the estimate. I should like to see a dummy copy showing binding and lettering. The top edges should be stained purple.
I enclose the design for the jacket. Would you get the line block made for this. I shall be obliged if you will see that the block reproduces the design exactly in every particular; the block maker must not redraw or touch up anything in the original, as the sketchiness and irregularities are intentional. I should like to see the proofs of the jacket.
I am returning your book of patterns under separate cover.
Yours faithfully | Leonard Woolf [signature]
