Scope and content

University Press Cambridge. - Thanks Trevelyan for his letter of 13 October [see 21/80]. The binders are still very busy: even now the Press is finding it 'impossible to get into stock' the 'many publications' they could not get bound during and immediately after the war; particularly those whose sale numbers do not justify binding large numbers of copies [such as Trevelyan's translation of Lucretius, about which he wrote enquiring]. Is sending on Trevelyan's letter to Mr David at Bentley House: knows he 'will do what he can'.
