TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Sir Andrew Noble, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date1 August 1906
DescriptionIn reply to Noble's letter of 28 July, taking Noble's queries in order, the number of sets of plates for the 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' edition is 850 exclusive of private copies for the author, Harrison encloses a specimen of the style of headline printed at the top of plates [not enclosed]. Asks Noble to wait three or four days for a reply to his enquiry as to the number to be given to the first plate, as that depends upon the position of another paper which is not quite yet fixed.
