Referee's report by George Rolleston, on two papers 'Lymphatics and their origin in muscular tissues' and 'On the minute structure and relationships of the lymphatics of the mammalian skin, and on the ultimate distribution of nerves to the epidermis and subepidermic lymphatics' by George Hoggan and Frances Elizabeth Hoggan

Reference number: RR/8/28

Date: 04 July 1877

Description

Not recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society', despite the high quality of the illustrations and descriptions. Refers to work of Teichmann [?], [Franz] Schweigger-Seydel, [Emanuel Edward] Klein and Krause [?]. Does not find the descriptions favourable. If the Council decides to print an abstract in the Proceedings, it will require careful editing.
