Although the collection bears Mr. Porro's name, there is very little in it actually by him. Rather this is a compendium of useful materials that Porro collected to aid him in his work.
This is a collection largely comprised of training materials prepared for various Perkin-Elmer made FT-IR analytical instruments.
