R.G. Longman to J.W. Mellor
22 October, 1937
Mellor Papers, Box 9, folder 3
Volume 16 of Mellor’s Comprehensive Treatise on Inorganic and Theoretical Chemistry was finally published towards the end of 1937. In October of that year the New York Herald Tribune announced that Longmans Green and Co. are ‘bring[ing] to conclusion one of the most stupendous feats of bookmaking ever accomplished in one lifetime’. Many reviewers of the volumes couldn’t believe that only one man had written every word. This letter from publisher Robert Guy Longman (1882-1971) congratulates Mellor on the completion of, what was, a monumental work.
