Annual Report of the Council. 9

Society are co-operating with the Council in the publi- cation of this volume.

A considerable number of books and pamphlets have been added to the Library during the year. The books are at present in the Secretary's rooms at Lincoln's Inn, but they will in due course be forwarded to the rooms of the Anthropological Institute at 3 Hanover Square, W.

The Council have, at the request of Mr. H. M. Bower, the author of The Ceri of Gubbio, consented to the trans- lation of the book into Italian upon certain terms submitted by Mr. Bower, one of which is that mention shall be secured in a suitable form in the Italian Edition of the fact of the Society having been the medium of publication of the original. So far as the Council are aware, this is the first occasion on which any of the Society's publi- cations has been translated into a foreign language.

The Society was represented at the meeting of the British Association in South Africa by Mr. E. Sidney Hartland and Dr. Haddon.

The Council submit herewith the annual accounts and balance sheet duly audited, which shows the satisfactory balance of £%6 6s. lod. to our credit. The balloting list for the Council and officers for the ensuing year is sent also.

By order of the Council.

W. H. D. ROUSE,

President.
