TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to the Collotype & General Printing Company
Date7 February 1901
DescriptionIs in receipt of the company's bills for plates to the Eclipse Reports and 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' paper by Dr Bolton. Regarding the latter, which he encloses [not enclosed], he would be glad of some explanation of the extra charge of there guineas for special letter forms. The amount of lettering on the plates does not appear to him to warrant any extra charge, and not to be in any way in excess of what is usually required upon plates. Takes exception to this extra charge all the more as the lettering provided is far from satisfactory.
