TitleReferee's report by Charles Vernon Boys, on a paper 'A standard measuring machine' by P E Shaw
Date[June 1912]
DescriptionSectional Committee: Physics and Chemistry

Recommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Suggests omitting some of the tables, but retaining the final column of results. The current paper does not compare to the novelty and advance of Charles-Nicolas Peaucellier's cell, but the advances the current machine present could parallel 'new knowledge'. Wonders if the Royal Society does not publish the paper, which Society will? Doesn't think the National Physical Laboratory would publish. If the money is forthcoming, is in favour of printing.

[Published in the 'Proceedings of the Royal Society of London', 1912]
