Referee's report by Edwin Ray Lanester, on a paper 'On the evolution of the vertebral column of amphibia and amuivta' by Hans Friedrich Gadow

Reference number: RR/12/319

Date: 09 August 1895

Description

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The paper is a sequel to an earlier one on fishes. Suggests the figures be printed with the colour tints, or hand coloured. The Committee would be justified in refusing to publish the paper until the author can provide carefully finished illustrations, as the ones sent with the manuscript are rough drawings with notes, which are unsuitable for printing.
