TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Dr Dukinfield Henry Scott, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date29 April 1897
DescriptionIn printing Scott's 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' paper, on 'Chirostrobus, Harrison proposed to have the diagram reproduced as a process-block to be printed with the letter-press. Asks to know where this should be placed. Enquires as this is a large block and has a page or two of description accompanying it in the manuscript. Wonders if the description could come in the ordinary way in small type below the figure.

The Society has sent the plates to Mr Edkins and Harrison is corresponding with him about them.
