TitleReferee's report by Robert Bellamy Clifton, on a paper 'On a perspective microscope' by George James Burch
Date15 March 1887
DescriptionNot recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The idea for the microscope is new, but poorly worked out. The style of the paper is not suited for the publications of the Royal Society. The abstract which has already been printed does not quite do the paper justice, but further publications are not necessary.

Subject: Applied Science, Physics and Chemistry
