Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The lists would prove immensely valuable. They would have been invaluable to the referee in writing an address for the Geological Society, if they had been available. Suggests the opening memoir be reviewed by a 'well qualified palaeontologist with a knowledge of physical geology'.
