TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Messrs Oliver & Boyd, Edinburgh
Date23 October 1908
DescriptionSir Archibald Geikie has asked Harrison to write to them to say that the inspection of the specimens of the Folding Panoramas for the Antarctic Album, has revealed so many unsatisfactory copies that it is necessary to have the whole edition overhauled.

Requests that they send the whole edition to Eyre and Spottiswoode. They may be sent without sorting, as they do not want to cause them further trouble. Those already placed in portfolios should be sent without portfolios.
