|Title||Copy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor Joseph Larmor, Secretary, Royal Society|
|Date||5 December 1905|
|Description||Harrison and Sir A Geikie have had a long interview with the printers who are in difficulty pricing the 'Proceedings [of the Royal Society]' for sale as shown on the advert sent to them for insertion. The printers suggest the Society advertise volume 76 A and B at 21 shillings, leaving the rest of the advert as it stands to show a distinct reduction in subscription term on the price of the published volume. Harrison and Geikie both think this reasonable and ask if Larmor consents to the alteration. The printers also think that in future they are going to charge net price for the volumes, they should make the price of the number net, that would be on a scale about 15 percent less than the present scale of prices. |
Encloses a copy of a letter sent to Mr Boys, with Geikie's concurrence [not enclosed].
Today the 220th paper this year came in, nearly 80 ahead of the number received at the corresponding point of any recent year.
