Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Vol. 215 : Series A., Containing Papers of a Mathematical and Physical Character; October, 1915 (Classic Reprint)
Excerpt from Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London, Vol. 215: Series A., Containing Papers of a Mathematical and Physical Character; October, 1915 The Committee appointed by the Royal Society to direct the publication of the Philosophical Transactions take this opportunity to acquaint the public that it fully appears, as well from the Council-books and Journals of the Society as from repeated declarations which have been made in several former Transactions, that the printing of them was always, from time to time, the single act'of the respective Secretaries till the Forty-seventh Volume; the Society, as a Body, never interesting themselves any further in their publication-than by occasionally recommending the revival of them to some of their Secretaries, when, from the particular circumstances of their affairs, the Transactions had happened for any length of time to be intermitted. And this seems principally to have been done with a view to satisfy the public that their usual meetings were then continued, for the improvement of knowledge and benefit of mankind the great ends of their first institution by the Royal Charters, and which they have ever since steadily pursued.
