Please note: The papers in the following volumes were read, communicated by letter, and accumulated over the full period of the published volume, often meaning over several years; this is the closest approximation we have to the dating of observations and evidence. Where an exact date appears in the paper, this is included. Most contributions were undated until Volume III, and were not necessarily printed in the chronological order of their delivery. The date appearing at the end of the entry is the publication date, even if read to the Society much earlier.
