TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Charles Walker, the University, Liverpool
Date24 March 1906
DescriptionHarrison sends the illustrations for Walker's two papers for Proceedings of the Royal Society so that he can get estimates for the blocks. He notes the size quoted for the plates is too small for Proceedings.

He asks that Walker only seek estimates for the plates as they prefer to use their own printers, with whom they have settled the description of the paper for the half-tone work, for the remainder. He asks that an estimate for the total cost of the blocks be returned with the original illustrations and a sample of work from the firm he proposes to use. Harrison further asks that arrangements are made for the lettering of the figures. If the estimate submitted is approved, they will let Walker know and then write to the firm direct.
