|Title||Unpublished manuscript, 'An instrument for cutting, grinding and polishing section-plates and prisms of minerals or other crystals securely in the desired directions' by A E [Alfred Edwin Howard] Tutton|
|Description||Tutton presents an updated version of an instruments which was described by him in volume 185 of Philosophical Transactions ('An instrument for grinding section-plates and prisms of crystals of artificial preparations accurately in the desired directions'). This new instrument has been devised and constructed upon similar principles, but with the necessary modifications and additions to enable equally accurately orientated plates or prisms to be prepared from the relatively harder crystals of natural minerals.|
Annotations in pencil and ink throughout. Includes one photograph of Tutton's instrument.
