TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Luxmoore Newcombe
Date8 October 1912
DescriptionThanks him for returning the Oxford Press Account. The item '750 copies of jacket' means the printed paper cover in which they wrapped the book for sending it. Harrison hates those covers personally, but publishers seem to think them indispensible. Has not yet made out a list of libraries to which the Catalogue should be sent, that will have to be settled by the Library Committee. There is little doubt that Necombe's library and London University library will be included. Harrison would like his views on libraries which would really value the Catalogue.
