TitleReferee's report by William Sharpey, on a paper 'Observations on the structure and development of bone' by John Tomes and Campbell Greig De Morgan
Date24 August 1852
DescriptionRecommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. Makes note of the lack of reference to other authors or previous work on the subject, and how previously-known information is interwoven with new information, in such a way that it is hard to distinguish. Suggests the authors edit their manuscript. Refers to work by William Baly, and his translation of Muller's Physiology. Refers to work by Benjamin Collins Brodie, Robert Bentley Todd and William Bowman [Physiological Anatomy, Vol.I, p.90] and Albert von Kölliker.
