|Description||Sectional Committee: Geology|
Not recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions.There can be no question as to the great account of labour involved in carrying out the researches embodied in this paper and the results are certainly worthy of publication but he does not think Philosophical Transactions the proper medium for the following reasons. A great deal of the paper is taken up with accounts of local details which are repetitious of descriptions of similar structures given in other portions of the paper. Such details would be more fitly published in a survey memoir treating of the district. Is not satisfied that some of the contentions of the author are borne out by observed facts, assuming the observations to be accurate. Though the author in the abstract claims that the conclusions are for the first time set forth in the paper now submitted, the present paper is one of a series by the author in which the conclusions have been reached step by step. Though the paper should be published somewhere, he does not consider himself justified in recommending the Council of the Society incurring the great expense of a paper of over 200 pages, with 36 sections, many of which would probably require re-drawing, three diagrammatic schemes, and two geological maps.
