TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Mr Hart, The Controller of the University Press, Oxford
Date18 July 1911
DescriptionHarrison has at last got authority to proceed with the preparation of a photographic facsimile reproduction of the Royal Society Charter Book, referred to in Hart's letter fo Dr Kenyon last year. Hart's letter contained an estimate for two alternative editions and Harrison thinks the large decision will probably be decided upon.
Harrison would like to start photographing of the pages during the summer, before the place is closed for cleaning. Harrison asks Hart to arrange for a proper person to come and see him, by appointment to discuss the details.
