DescriptionIn order to meeting Worthington's objections to the unsatisfactory printing of the half-tone figures in his 'Philosophical Transactions [of the Royal Society]' plate, Council decided at their last meeting that the blocks should be reprinted separately on suitable paper and so issued for insertion in the whole volume edition.
