TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Klein
Date7 March 1898
DescriptionSorry to hear that the interest of the German government in the International Catalogue is declining but the preparation of the scheme has been long and tedious. The Royal Society is now on the point of issuing the report. Have tried to make the scope of the work fairly international and useful to those who do not speak English, as requested at the Conference. Hopes that Klein will be able to approve the general outlines of the proposals.
