|Description||Early version of figures 1-9 from plate XXV showing nine nebulae discussed in Parsons' paper. The nebulae are drawn in graphite.

The nebulae correspond, respectively, to numbers 15, 156, 232, 241-242, 262, 311, 315, and 327 in William Herschel's catalogue of nebulae. Later versions of these figures are found at PT/62/8/43.|
