TitleReferee's report by James Clerk Maxwell, on a paper 'New researches upon the dispersion of the optic axes in Harmotome and Wöhlerite, proving these minerals to belong to the clinorhombic [oblique] system' by Alfred Louis Olivier Des Cloizeaux
Datend [1868]
DescriptionRecommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society', if Muller [Hugo Muller?] is also satisfied. Does not feel confident in criticising the originality of the paper fully on account of not being up-to-date with current crystallographic research. Refers to work by Dove [Heinrich Wilhelm Dove?].
