|Description||'In answer to your letter enquiring concerning papers on the colouring of opals by Stewster and others, I beg to suggest that you consult the Society's Catalogue of Scientific Papers, of which there should be a copy in Newcastle. This will at least give you the titles of all the papers by Brewster, and the other authors you mention, down to 1883. I regret that we have not the time to go through the lists here, but on glancing through the first list (under Brewster) I find a reference to Reports of the British Association 1844 (Pt.2) p.9. For years later than 1883, I can only suggest that you consult the Indexes to Nature, the Chemical News, The Geological Magazine, and other such likely serials. |
I regret I cannot help you more definitely.'
