and 20 A.G.M.'s with Secretary's reports glued in and included within the main number sequence.

Meeting numbers appear to be incorrect from the 13th A.G.M. (1915) which is given as the 56th instead of the 58th on 02-10-1920 [therefore 2 out] this has been corrected to the 81st instead of the 82nd, [therefore one out].

The culprit of cupping marks on page 1 remains unidentified.
'British' added to the title of the Society at 19th meeting (4th A.G.M.) 27 January 1906.
