Nov 7th

I have by this same post sent off the few & trifling errata to Mr Clowes.—1 Have you given orders about the Heliotypes?2 I am very glad of your news.—3 Let me hear sale of all my books,—

In Haste | C. Darwin


Murray had asked for corrections to Expression (letter from John Murray, 6 November [1872]). William Clowes was Murray’s printer. See letters from J. V. Carus, 7 October 1872 and n. 6, 11 October 1872 and n. 1, and 24 October 1872 and nn. 4, 7, and 10.
The orders referred to have not been identified. The photographs in Expression were reproduced using the heliotype process.


Expression: The expression of the emotions in man and animals. By Charles Darwin. London: John Murray. 1872.


Has sent off a few trifling errata [of Expression] to Mr Clowes. Asks about the heliotypes.

Would like to hear about the sale of his books. [See 8616.]
