TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Henry Frowde, Oxford University Press
Date7 November 1912
DescriptionSending two cheques, each for one guinea, which are for copies of the Charter Book reproduction, and Harrison shall be much obliged by them forwarding them to the Reverend E W Barnes and Professor J E Petavel. Harrison's attention has been called to the price they have put on the prospectus of American buyers for both publications. They give $25.20 and $6 as the equivalent of £3.3.0 and 15/-. Asks why there is some special reason for nearly doubling the price for the American market.
