The regulations for the printing of the Transactions will remain the same as mentioned in the Report for 1881 (page 4), except that, in consequence of the increased number of copies required, the rate per page, payable by the Author, will have to be increased from 2/- to 2/6 for all beyond the first four.

The Council feel that the results of the past Session are very encouraging, alike as regards the Papers read, the large attendances at the various Evening and Field Meetings, and the great interest manifested in the proceedings of the Association. They would wish to impress upon the Members the necessity for continued efforts on the part of each one to ensure success in the future, by the production of Papers introducing interesting subjects for discussion.

The advantages of a good reference Library of Geological Books, Maps, Sections, and M.S.S., also works relating to other branches of Physical Science, are so obvious that the Council feel that they have only to bring the desirability of establishing such a Library to the notice of members to obtain their hearty co-operation. So soon as a sufficient number has been collected, a Catalogue of the Books will be printed, and arrangements will be made for their circulation.
