Book excerpt: Excerpt from Proceedings and Transactions of the Royal Society of Canada, 1889: Deliberations Et Memoires De La Societe Royale Du Canada The Royal Society of Canada held its seventh general meeting in the Railway Committee Room of the House of Commons at Ottawa, on Tuesday, May 22nd. The President, Prof. Lawson, took the chair at 11 o'clock, a. m., and formally called the meeting to order. Dr. George Stewart was called upon to act as secretary in the temporary absence of Dr. Bourinot. The minutes of the sixth general meeting, May, 1887, as printed in the fifth volume of the Transactions, were read and approved. The Acting Secretary read the following Report of the Council. The Council of the Royal Society of Canada have the honour to submit their annual report: - Vol. VI of the Transactions of the Society has recently appeared and is now in course of distribution. It contains over six hundred and fifty pages of printed matter and several illustrations, on the whole well executed. Much delay has occurred, as in the case of previous volumes, on account of the difficulty of obtaining the return of proofs and revises with a satisfactory degree of promptitude. It is needless, however, to observe that so large a volume, filled with many abstruse and scientific papers, requiring very exact revision, cannot be rapidly issued like ordinary books; and the publisher and printer can be congratulated on the excellence of their work and on their efforts to meet the wishes of the authors in every essential particular. At the same time the Council must impress on the authors of papers the difficulty of keeping a large amount of matter for months in type, and the necessity of assisting the printers by every means in their power. We submit the accounts of printing and publishing as audited by the Printing Committee. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
