Referee's report by William Chandler Roberts-Austen, on a paper 'Micro-crystalline structure of platinum' by Thomas Andrews

Reference number: RR/15/146

Date: 21 December 1901

Description

Sectional committee: [Physics and chemistry]

Recommended for publication in Proceedings but the four illustrations should be included in a single plate as they do not 'deserve more'. Suggests reference to the work of Dr Archibald Liversidge 'On the line structure of gold and platinum nuggets and gold ingots', 'Royal Society of New South Wales', 3 October 1894. Suggests the author should highlight the resemblance between points in his sections of platinum and those in pure gold as shown in figure 10, plate 9 and figure 16, plate 10 of the paper by Osmond and Roberts-Austen in Philosophical Transactions volume 187, 1896, pp.417-432.

[Published in Proceedings of the Royal Society, 1901].

Endorsed on verso as received 23 December 1901.
