TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs West Newman & Company
Date3 November 1896
DescriptionThe Society has a set of some hundred plates of drawings of bacteria and cultures, most of them tinted or colourful. In order to be guided as to the publication of these, Harrison is directed to get a rough idea of the cost of their reproduction. Asks if the Messrs could call in and look at them with a view to the possible use of lithography. Nothing definite is yet sealed but the Society would be glad of an opinion to aid their coming to a decision.
