TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to G Swan
Date31 July 1903
DescriptionIs now able to give Swan the final instructions as to the number of prints et cetera of the Stokes portrait. Mrs Myers thinks it would be desirable to have the words Swan suggested; 'Copyright from life by Mrs. W.F. Myers, 1892', inscribed on the plate. It is considered desirable to have 400 prints of the quarto royal on Indian paper for presentation and 1600 ordinary prints demi octavo for the Society's publication. Swan may later receive a further demand from the Cambridge University Press for impressions of the plate, at their own cost, and subject to the plate not being too worn to yield them.
