DescriptionTheir estimate of four pounds and ten shillings for the five figures, one curve and two diagrams in William de Wiveleslie Abney and Thomas Edward Thorpe's paper is accepted. Rix sends these, together with one extra figure which is so small that he assumes it will be included for the original price.
