TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison to Horace Hart
Date10 May 1912
DescriptionThe Record [of the Royal Society].
Referring to Harrison's letter earlier, no actual order having yet been given for preparing the plate for the Darwin portrait, Harrison is authorised to ask if Hart's Press would make a photogravure plate of the photograph enclosed [no enclosure]. Harrison gives details of the photograph and plans for getting it to Hart's Press.
With regard to the binding , Harrison has been talking to the President and his inclination is in favour of something of the style of art linen, of a cream colour with dark label for the lettering on the back. Harrison asks whether it would be possible if Hart could send one or two patterns or samples of such bindings.
