TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to W Shackleton, Royal College of Science, South Kensington, S.W.
Date28 June 1898
DescriptionThe Photographic Committee of the Royal Astronomical Society have applied to the Royal Society for the loan of the negatives of the Solar Corona taken at Nova Zemyla in August 1896. They wish to take reproductions of these photographs to include them with the other photographs of astronomical subjects that they have on sale. Asks if Shackleton has the negatives. Does not think that there will be a problem to loan them for this purpose.
