Drop-head title, verso and conjugate leaf blank. The report is signed by 'Jos. Boult, Secretary'. The Society subsequently dated its inauguration from 3 December, 1835 but probably did not survive long for when the Liverpool Architectural and Archaeological Society (later the Liverpool Architectural Society) was established in 1848, its Proceedings for 1848/9 commencing with a brief outline of its foundation and a Prospectus which states that 'no place has yet been found [in Liverpool] for a Society having ... for its object the cultivation of Architectural taste, and the encouragement of improvements in the science of construction'. Josiah Boult was one of the promoters of the Liverpool Architectural and Archaeological Society, and a member of its council.
