Macmillan & Co., Ltd. - Has decided on the more attractive of the specimen pages and instructed the printers to print in slips the portion he needs for the Cambridge lectures; the Commentary, Introduction and Index ought to make up a single volume; does not want him to work too much on a book outside the scope of his anthropological studies, and that would delay a second volume of 'The Worship of Nature'; had not contemplated illustrations, but 8 or 16 would do, and recommends G. F. Hill or J. Penoyre as qualified to make a selection for him.
