TitleRegister of Papers submitted to the Royal Society, 1921-1926

For each manuscript is entered:
Number; title; author(s); communicator(s); date received; date read at meeting of the Committee of Papers; date refereed; name of referees; date manuscript returned by referees; date reported to sectional committee; date of Council vote; the last column records the destination [journal published in or date returned]
