TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Dr J H Mummery
Date26 January 1912
DescriptionWith further reference to the illustrations to Mummery's Phil[osophical] Trans[actions of the Royal Society] paper, Harrison informs him that they have now obtained a series of estimates from lithographers for their reproduction and Harrison writes in order to choose between them.
There is 5 estimates with most expensive being £48.15 and the least being £14.10. The difference is dependant on the number of colours employed, or which Harrison gives particulars. Accordingly the average price for plate work such as this does not exceed £40. With these particulars Harrison asks for Mummery's views and preferences.
