Abstract : Densities in spectra of stars in Kapteyn's Selected Area No. 19 taken with a Schmidt camera are measured and correlated with the corresponding monochromatic magnitudes in Elvius' reference catalogue (1951). An analytical expression for the calibration curve is found. Line parameters for 84 stars are determined and the stars are classified according to the Uppsala spectral classification system. Their colors and absolute magnitudes are also calculated. The color excess as a function of distance is then determined and the absorption out to 2 kpc is found. (Author) Their colors and absolute magnitudes are also calculated.
