TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to G W Smith
Date8 July 1908
DescriptionUnder the circumstances for why he would like his photographs returned, Harrison thinks it would be more convenient to him and his publishers if the engravers send them electros of the blocks. Takes it for granted that the figures for Natural History will be printed in the text, or at the same size he has indicated to the Royal Society. If he wishes to have the blocks made by a special engraver, and let the Royal Society have them, then that would serve the purpose even better, as it it would save the Royal Society money.
