The Council, with a view to the convenience of the Fellows gene-
rally, and to the better care of Works that are easily injured, have
deemed it expedient to make the following regulations, in conformity
with Section XIX. Art. 1. of the Bye-laws.
1. The Books shall only be delivered to a Fellow of the Society, or

to some one producing a written order from such Fellow; and
a receipt shall be given by the person to whom the book is
delivered (expressing the name of the Fellow for whom it is

received), in a book kept for that purpose.
2, Any Fellow failing to return a book on the application of the

Council, or returning books torn or defaced, shall be consi-
dered as liable for their value; and if they are separate volumes,

for the value of the whole work rendered imperfect.
3. All books allowed to circulate may be retained a fortnight; after

the expiration of that time, every book shall be immediately
returned so soon as the Fellow shall receive an intimation
from the Librarian that it is wanted; and every book shall be
returned after the expiration of one month from the date of

its having been delivered from the Library.
4. All books shall be returned on the 1st of November for a

fortnight, at which period the Librarian shall deliver a report

to the Council on the state of the Library.
5. No Fellow shall have in his possession at one time more than


Volumes, without the permission of the Council.
6. Any Member failing to comply with the above regulations after

receiving notice from the Librarian shall be fined half-a-crown
