Pp [i]-iv,1-67,(1),+ 4 plates (3 folding). 8vo, cream card covers. “With the collapse of the market for seaweed as a starting material for the manufacture of iodine, following the first world war, an important source of income was lost to the sea board population of the west of Ireland. For that reason the Industrial Research Council, on being appointed in 1934, undertook a programme of research designed to find alternative uses for seaweeds in a study oftheir chemical and botanical characteristics. The programme was continued by this Institute which was established by the Government in 1946 to replace the Industrial Research Council. The work which is described in this report was executed in the years 1947 to 1949, but for various reasons publication of the results has been delayed.” - from the Foreword by Donal T. Flood.
