TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor [James Alfred] Ewing, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date11 October 1900
DescriptionWith reference to the printing of the collotype plates in Ewing's 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' paper, Harrison has consulted the collotyper regarding some of the figures Ewing finds unsatisfactory. The collotyper assures a satisfactory result when new plates are prepared in the usual way. Hopes Ewing will be reassured by this and offers to send a revise of the figures in question; but this would entail a double expense to the collotyper.
