TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to [Messrs Harrsion & Sons]
Date12 January 1906
DescriptionHarrison remarks that the covers of the cloth copies of Proceedings of the Royal Society are both looser and less sturdy than they had hoped, and so he asks that they strengthen them by inserting a headband. The need for firmly attached covers due to the weight of the volumes is emphasised. He asks that they suggest a solution for future volumes.
