|Title||Paper, 'Note on the spectra of the flames of some metallic compounds' by George Downing Liveing and James Dewar|
|Description||The authors write: 'A study of the spectra of flames offers many points of interest. It is long since A. Mitscherlich (Poggendorff’s ‘Annalen,’ vol. 116, p. 499; vol. 121, p. 459) showed that the spectra of flames are, for the most part, those of compounds of the elements present, and contain comparatively few rays proceeding directly from the elements themselves.'|
