TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Messrs T & R Annan & Sons
Date6 March 1912
Description'In 1908 you prepared and printed for the Royal Society three photogravure portraits of Lord Kelvin.
I write to enquire if you have the original plates of these portraits. I think they were never sent up to us or our printers, so I presume they are still in your hands. Please let me know if you have them.
It is in contemplation to print further copies of one of them, so perhaps at the same time you might let me know your price for printing say (1) 500 copies and (2) 750 copies.'
