Letter to Sir Archibald Geikie from William Hellier Baily, 07 February 1871

Identifier: Coll-74/11/8/3

Scope and Contents

Letter to Sir Archibald Geikie from William Hellier Baily telling Geikie that he believes that, in the new edition of an unnamed book, the lists of genera in the section "Life of the Period" should not be included as to make these up to date would require too much editorial work. He reports that he will correct some other portions, at the expense of his own book, but wonders whether Robert Etheridge would have been more suitable for the job. He congratulates Geikie on his forthcoming professorship.
