The ledger was used to keep track of the circulation of manuscripts and the decision or not to publish.
The ledger was custom printed for the Committee of Papers, beginning with an alphabetised index, where names of authors have been entered. The headings of the columns are printed with all information entered in ink.
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; passed for publication; notes on publication.
The volume covers manuscripts received between January 1927 and April 1936, which corresponds to printed volumes 215 to 226 of Philosophical Transactions B for biological sciences and printed volumes 113 to 121 of Proceedings B.
A sheet pasted on inside cover tallies all entries from 1927 to April 1936 inclusive.
