Scope and Contents

Letter to Sir Archibald Geikie from John George Bartholomew concerning the publication of a map of agricultural land-use and geology of Ireland at a scale of 10 miles to the inch. Bartholomew reports that the production of this map would not be a commercial viability unless the sale to schools was guaranteed, because Edward Hull already had a similar map on the market. He agrees to estimate the cost of production.
