TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Horace Hart
Date25 November 1911
DescriptionHarrison was sorry to miss seeing Hart the other day and thinks they can all agree with him in his preference for the marked specimen of printing of the Charter Book page; and in considering the numerals for the pagination too large. Harrison should much prefer the pagination on the top right hand corner of the page, but should like to consult the President further about this.
There is another point about which the President has asked Harrison to write. The Royal Society are about to bring out a new edition of the "Record of the Royal Society" with a larger page than the last edition. The favoured size it that of the Proceedings [of the Royal Society], and Harrison asks if Hart could sent him a specimen.
