TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Clay & Sons, University Press, Cambridge
Date14 July 1898
DescriptionThe Catalogue Committee of the Society are prepared to accept the Messrs offer to print the supplementary volume of the 'Catalogue of Scientific Papers' on the same conditions as those governing the previous volumes but subject to a grant from the Society of £150 per volume. The Society hope to send the first instalment of copy at the end of the month but some unexpected difficulties have arisen in the last stage of preparation such that Harrison fears the installment will not be so large as hoped. The office will be closed throughout August so Harrison asks what is the least amount of copy the Messrs would require to keep the printing work going during that month.
