TitleReferee's report by Thomas Henry Huxley, on a paper 'The physical theory of muscular contraction' by Charles Bland Radcliffe
DescriptionRecommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Makes a difference between the hypothesis and the manner of the arguments put forward. The hypothesis is 'well worthy of consideration' but would 'only be damaged' by the inclusion of the innacurate statements in the argument. Refers to work of Beaut [?], Jean-Baptiste Dumas, Gabriel Valentin, Carlo Matteucci, Ermann [Paul Erman?], Marchaud [Megor Marchaud?], Ernst Heinrich Weber.
