Date26 January 1897
DescriptionIn relation to papers by Joseph Norman Lockyer and George Smyth Baden Powell, Harrison sends two cards of photographs to form the two plates, and a small photograph to form a block for the text, and requests estimates for their reproduction from a drawing by W H Wesley, in the quarto format of 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society', to run to 1000 copies and include paper and lettering.

At the same time as the estimates, he asks for a specimen of their work reproduced from a drawing by Wesley of the Royal Astronomical Society, to be sent with the returned photographs by Wednesday afternoon.
