DescriptionWith reference to Ewing's paper 'Effects of Strain on the Crystalline Structure of Lead', the Committee of the Society have difficulty recommending it for publication in its present form, chiefly on account of the expense of reproducing the illustrations, several of which seem unnecessary.
