|Title||Referee's report by Frederick Orpen Bower, on a paper 'Longitudinal symmetry in Phanerogamia' by Percy Groom|
|Description||Sectional Committee: Botany|
Not recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Reviewer agreed to review the paper on the understanding that it was in a more finished, typewritten state. As it stands, the reviewer is not happy to 'wade through the author's rough copy'. The methods and descriptions are important, but not in their curret 'colossal form'. Asks that the author reduce the paper to a more satisfactory state before presenting the paper again. Suggests that the Society should ask for more finished papers only to be sent for review.
Official addendum indicates that the paper as it stands would cost £160 for print and £34 for illustrations. As publications are an increasing cost for the Royal Society, it would be best to consider if the paper could be reduced.
