TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to J Green
Date6 July 1903
DescriptionReferring to Green's letter asking for instructions about mr Boulenger's negatives, it is not the Society's practice to pay for negatives to be used in assisting engravers to obtain the best result in their reproductions. Authors usually gladly furnish the negatives for this purpose and they are duly returned. If the Society undertook to purchase all negatives used it would soon form an impossible addition to their publication expenses. If Green's negatives are his private property and he is unwilling to let Boulenger have the temporary use of them, Harrison is afraid they will have to dispense with them altogether.
