TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to R Champion, Director, Messrs Dulau & Co Ltd
Date15 July 1910
DescriptionReplying to Champion's letter requesting the authority to sell the Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society] volumes on the same terms as those on which the sale of separate papers in entrusted. For this to happen Harrison must recall the arrangement made by the Council in 1906 by which pincipal sale of the Philosophical Transactions and Proceedings [of the Royal Society] was placed in the hands of Harrison & Sons printers. The arrangement having been formally communicated to that firm, the Society does not feel at liberty to make any agreement inconsistent with that arrangement.
The Royal Society is keen to extend the sale of its publication and therefore if Champion consults with Messrs Harrison & Sons and can suggest a working plan Harrison does not think the Society would be likely to object.
