TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to George Albert Boulenger, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date6 July 1903
DescriptionHarrison has a letter from Mr J Green, the draughtsman, concerning the negatives which the collotypers would like to use in preparing the two collotype plates for Boulenger's paper. Green asks for instructions to hand over the negatives and adds that the cost of the two negatives will be one guinea. Explains why it is not the practice of the Society to purchase negatives. Fears that unless the negatives can be furnished in the usual way, they shall have to ask the collotypers to do their best with merely the prints supplied to them.
