Scope and content

Inside the front cover of the album.

On the left reads:
'W.M. Flinders Petrie,
8 Crescent Road,

A piece of paper has also been inserted and reads:
'As some friends have desired to have copies of these photographs (which at present I have no time to prepare myself) I have placed the plates in the hands of Mr. R.C. Murray, 37 Dartmouth Park Hill NW; and arranged with them to supply copies to order (not less than 6 at once) at 3d per print, post free. Only the numbers need be mentioned, but a list of the titles should be retained.
There is far more detail in the negatives than can be transferred to a print; and any one wishing to refer to them for scientific purposes will please to apply to me. Prints on glass are almost as good as the original negatives for examination, and can be easily supplied, as well as enlargements to any scale.
W.M. Flinders Petrie.'
