    Excerpt from The Library, Vol. 4: A Magazine of Bibliography and Literature; Jan.-Dec., 1892

    But the days have past by for impressing the necessity for catalogues - no longer is it requisite to formulate an excuse for their existence - least of all to a company such as that here present.

    A society such as I have suggested would be the means of bringing together those of similar tastes - men engaged in the same study, and would, I feel certain, have a wide field of useful ness. Periodical meetings would be held for the reading of papers and discussion of subjects connected with books, and for mutual assistance in such directions as the bibliographers of writers of note, special subjects, localities, publishers, printers, &c., also for the exhibition of rare or remarkable books, and the furnishing information as to eminent collectors and collections of books, celebrated book sales, eminent printers and publishers, notable catalogues and subjects connected with typography and bookbinding. Such a society would almost of necessity have its centre and head-quarters in London, but in order that it should receive general support all over the kingdom, it should have, I consider, branches in the larger towns, at least in those where sufficient support can be obtained. The object of this is to encourage as much as possible local talent, and to make as wide spread as possible the usefulness of the society. One cannot help being struck with the fact of how large a portion of themembers of the societies in the Metropolis are cut off from some of the most important advantages of the society by non residence there. This would be met by the suggestion as to local branches. Probably, in any town where fifty members joined, a local branch could be established. Where such a branch was formed, it should have a local council and secretary, and periodical meetings be held at which papers might be read. A selection of these papers might be made by the Central Council in London for publication in the Society's Journal, which should be issued from time to time. The local council should be composed of certain members chosen by the general assembly of members in the particular town. This council should be elected annually, and should elect from among themselves a president, vice-president, treasurer, and hono rary secretary. The local president should, by virtue of his office, be a member of the Central Council in London. Pro bably it would be found advisable to permit persons to join the local branches without their becoming members of the Central Society.
