TitleReferee's report by George Boole, on a paper 'On clinant geometry, as a means of expressing the general relations of points in a plane, realizing imaginaries reconciling ordinary algebra with plane geometry, and extending the theories of anharmonic ratios' by Alexander John Ellis
DescriptionRecommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society'. The paper may not show great originality but it does deserve to be published. Is doubtful whether the Philosophical Transactions is the right place for it. Suggests the author more clearly and justly describe the subject.
