THOSE interested in the publications of the local scientific societies in Great Britain will have noticed that after the falling off in the printing of memoirs which occurred during the War, there has been a healthy revival. Notwithstanding the enormous increase in the cost of printing and binding, many of the scientific societies have reached the pre-War standard of their reports, and in some cases have even exceeded that. A perusal of the enormous number of reports and transactions recently issued shows that much more discrimination is now being taken in the publication of papers by the scientific societies. Whether as a result of the Conference of Delegates at the British Association, or the various criticisms and suggestions appearing in NATURE and other journals, those responsible for the production of publications of local interest are certainly adding considerably to the value of these transactions by confining the contents as near as possible to the district covered by the societies' activities.
