TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to G J Burch
Date10 May 1898
DescriptionIs sending the book of spectra belonging to Burch's paper. Does not think that there will be any objection to Burch making the new spectra drawings on a larger scale than they will be printed. They can easily be reduced so as to get four spectra in to one Philosophical Transactions plate as has been suggested. The latest coloured spectra in the Philosophical Transactions is, Harrison believes, in a paper of Sir W Crooke's in volume 176 for 1885.
