Excerpt from Transactions of the Royal Society of Literature of the United Kingdom, 1847-8, Vol. 2
In the third department of its operations, the Society has likewise been hitherto restrained by the limited extent of its funds. It has nevertheless continued, in a second volum... e of sixty folio Plates, the publication of Hieroglyphics begun by the Egyptian Society under the editorship of the late learned Dr. Thomas Young. The liberality of some of its members has further enabled the Council to publish the first two volumes of a Biographin Britannica Literaria, or Biography of Literary Characters of Great Britain and Ireland.
