TitleCopy letter from Robert William Frederick Harrison, to Lieutenant Colonel Sir David Prain, Fellow of the Royal Society
Date16 October 1914
DescriptionThe property in the new series of the Catalogue of Scientific Papers rests entirely in the Cambridge University Press, and the Royal Society has no control over the distribution except such as the Royal Society may buy for the purpose of presentation. Considering how much money has been sunk into the project by the Royal Society, and how much it will lose over the International Catalogue, it is doubtful the Treasurer will feel incline to buy presents.
