|Title||Referee's report by Richard Tetley Glazebook, on a paper 'Skew refraction through a lens; and on the hollow-pencil given by an annulus of a very obliquely placed lens' by Joseph David Everett|
|Date||28 February 1903|
|Description||Sectional Committee: Mathematics|
Recommended for publication in Philosophical Transactions, with great hesitation. He thinks the references to [Philipp Ludwig] von Seidel's work might be modified. The two plates should be reproduced as these really give all the results. Has had great difficulty in coming to a decision regarding the paper and suggests an alternative cause in an appended report. In the report Glazebrook states the results of the investigations seem to be of distinct interest and might to be published practically in full. At the same time it must be remembered that they do not apply to a real case. The author has described the methods and intermediate stages at undue length. Thinks the paper would be increased in value if it were rewritten and greatly abbreviated. The abstract of the paper could be extended and published in the Proceedings, in which case the curves should be printed on square paper.
