TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Horace Hart
Date18 March 1912
DescriptionRoyal Society's Catalogue of Periodicals.
Harrison received the first slip proof of the above and at once communicated with Mr Newcombe asking him not to let the printing proceed until Harrison had seen him.Before Harrison's note reached him hwoever, he had sent off another batch of copy upon which Hart's compositirs are probably at work already but Harrison requests that Hart holds his hand until one or two points in typography are settled.
1. Firsts the Royal Society think that the numerals used for the cross-references are much longer than necessary, and not clearer on that account.
2. Harrison asks whether it is not possible to have a perfectly clear arrow which is less obtrusive that the one used.
Harrison does not remember whether he told Hart of that the edition of this Catalogue is to be 750 and that the Royal Society proposed to bind 400 at the outset in paper boards of which Harrison would like to see specimens.
