Reference numberRR/8/38
TitleSecond referee's report by Henry Clifton Sorby, on a paper 'On the nature and origin of the beds of chert in the upper carboniferous limestones of Ireland' by Edward Hull and E T Hardman
Datend [1877]
DescriptionRecommended for publication in the 'Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society', but hesitatingly. Refers to his previous report [RR/8/39], where he had also trouble coming to a conclusion regarding publication. The author's conclusions are covered well in the abstract published in the Proceedings, but this does not give the associated data. Considers the subject deserves fuller explanation and that the analysis should be published. If the paper is too long for the Philosophical Transactions, then a much shortened form should appear in the Proceedings.

Subject: Geology
