TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Professor L Becker
Date6 September 1907
Descriptionthe negatives arrived safely and have been handed to the engraver. They shall be able to do the eclipse photograph without any reduction, by arranging them in three rows instead of two. The engravers will take every care about the proper joining of the first and second potions. All the corona visible will be reproduced as far as the collotype can show it. There will be no room for a number beneath each picture, so that the exposure et cetera can be explained on a printed page opposite the plate.
