WOOLF - TO THE LIGHTHOUSE
We acknowledge, with thanks, your letter of the 23rd inst., regarding the above book. Unfortunately we are unable to submit a revised quotation for an offset reprint of 1,000 copies (including paper) without sight of the original copy, which was apparently returned to you with our letter of July 9th.
[*I have sent them a copy BH*1. 28/7/41*]
At the same time, we would welcome further information regarding the second proposition for the reprinting of a 'novel of ordinary length', as we should require to know the size and approximate number of pages before we could state definitely whether we have sufficient paper available in quad crown size. However, on receipt of the above details we shall be pleased to advise you accordingly and await the favour of an immediate reply.
With compliments, | Yours faithfully | PERCY LUND HUMPHRIES & CO. LTD. | AH [signature]
