For a paper I'm about to write I would like to find information about
the person L. St.G. Byne.

Byne wrote the classic paper: "The Corrosion of Shells in Cabinets"

seashells) today known as "Bynes disease" (or more correctly "Bynes
efflorescence"). This is just about what I know, but I would be
grateful if someone knows about his life etc. I'm also searching for
a copy of a portrait or picture of him. I can be contacted off list
at: morten.ryhl [at] get2net__dk By the way, I'm also interested in
reports/stories of occurrences of Bynes efflorescence in
