Osborne Jones, Ystrad Meurig, an original member, entitled The Genesis of the Society,' in Vol. I, page 102. It suspended operations in 1940 but resumed its activities in 1947. During its first period the Society issued fourteen volumes of Transactions, copies of which (except a few which are out of print) are on sale at Messrs. S. V. Galloway, Booksellers, Pier Street, Aberystwyth (for particulars and prices see page 4 of this cover). Copies of an Index to the Transactions, compiled by Mr. D. G. Griffiths, are on sale at the Cardiganshire Joint Library, Aberystwyth, price two shillings. From 1950 onwards the issue of Transactions is superseded by the issue of Ceredigion, which can, therefore, be regarded as forming a Second Series of publications. The names of the Officers and of the Executive Committee of the Society are printed on page 3 of this cover. Offers of papers to be read at meetings of the Society should be addressed to the Honorary Secretary, but material for publication should be sent to the Honorary Editor. The annual subscription is ten shillings. The use of a Banker's Order is re- commended. The Society warmly welcomes additions to its membership.
