Unsigned handwritten notes in ink and pencil, four pages on two adjoining sheets, 8 x 12.25, January 20, 1883. Scientific notes on “Small long rods,” with several different tables of information. The third table provides the “Intensity,” “Temporary” and “Permanent” for a variety of different steel types, including “Tungsten steel,” “Chromed steel,” “Double bell steel,” and “Bell steel.” In fine condition, with central vertical and horizontal folds and light creases. Pre-certified PSA/DNA.
