Carl Jelinek

Article metrics


ALLOW me to correct a little inadvertency in the necrology of Carl Jelinek (NATURE, vol. xv. p. 85). In line 8 from commencement “Prague” should be read instead of “Vienna,” as the former and not the latter observatory was then under the direction of Kreil. Jelinek passed four years (1843–1847) as assistant in the Vienna observatory, then under my direction, and published in that period a valuable memoir on hygrometrical observations made at Vienna in the years 1829–1845, besides several astronomical observations and computations in the Astronomische Nachrichten, and in the Annals of the Vienna observatory.
