TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to M C W Askling, Handverkaregatan 51, Norrkoping, Sweden
Date26 May 1909
DescriptionHarrison has authorised Messrs Harrison & Sons to supply Askling with electros of figs 7 and 46 illustrating Professor H [Harold] B [Baily] Dixon's paper in the Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society "On the movements of the flame in the explosion of gases". Figs 1 and 4 of this paper are reproduced by a lithographic process, therefore electros cannot be produced but Harrison & Sons would probably be able to prepare half-tone blocks for these. Harrison asks that due acknowledgment in Askling's text book be made of the source from which the illustrations are produced.
