TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Horace Hart
Date13 October 1911
DescriptionHarrison thanks Hart for his letter and will be prepared for his photographer on Monday. With regard to the question of binding mentioned, Harrison thinks Hart may take it as certain that the [Royal] Society would not embark on any such expensive binding of the Charter Book as that of whole morocco costing more than 30/- a copy. Such a number binded for presentation would have to be at a price more of the order of the second figure mentioned.
Harrison was disucssing the question with Sir Joseph Larmor and he rather likes the general effect of the paper boards, but it would have to be something rather stronger and more "dressy" than that.
