TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Gustav A Hemsalech, 42 Museum Street, E.C.
Date1 October 1901
DescriptionIs informed by Professor [Arthur] Schuster that a French scientific journal is desirous of using some of the blocks illustrating the paper by Hemsalech and Schuster, 'On the Constitution of the Electric Spark'. Harrison is sure Council would be willing to grant permission for the republishing of the illustrations but it is contrary to practice to allow the original blocks to leave the Society's possession. Harrison will be happy to give instructions to the Society's printers to supply cliches of the blocks, the cost of which would be trifling.
