This report contains the first comprehensive account of a new technique developed at the California Institute of Technology (and to date duplicated nowhere else) for the measurement, with high absolute precision, by means of a focusing curved crystal diffraction spectrometer, of the wavelengths and energies of gamma-rays from natural and artificial emitters over a wide range of quantum energies from 1.3 Mev (wavelength, 9 x-units) to 25 kev (wavelength 500 x-units).
