TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Herrn F Vieweg & Sohn
Date5 February 1901
DescriptionAcknowledges the Messrs answers to Harrison's enquiry concerning the coloured plate of spectra to illustrate the paper by Professor [William] Ramsay. Thanks the Messrs for quoting terms and supplying a copy of the plate as appearing in Professor Edrmann's book.

On comparing Ramsay's plate with Professor Edrmann's, it appears that they are not in the order in which they occur in the original. Under these circumstances Harrison thinks it will be better for the Society to have a new plate prepared at the Society.
