The annual reports of the RST for 1951 and 1952 express worries about the Society's finances ; specifically the 1952 report mentions the steep rise in printing costs of the previous 3 years, and that the government grant to print volume 86 (publication date, 1952, for papers and proceedings of 1951) was too small.

Generally, library catalogues are stating that the papers and proceedings for 1951 were not published. This is not quite correct. Volume 86 contains the annual report for 1951, and a description of each meeting in 1951, and very full abstracts of the papers presented.
