In addition to announcements of meetings and various circulars sent to members from time to time, the Society issues a single serial publication entitled The NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC MAGAZINE. During the first two years of the existence of the Society this serial was issued in quarterly numbers.

The Magazine is maileil free to members of the Society and to exchanges. The first two volumes, as well as the separate brochures of the third and the complete volume, are soll at the prices given below by the Secretary, Mr. F. H. Sewell, V. S. Geological Survey, Washington, D. C.
