An account of Alexander Christie's lecture on the subject of decorative arts around Europe from the fourth to the twelfth century. Christie opines that architectural features and styles should be taken as representative of the decorative taste of the time. In his lecture, he showed the development of style through drawings and other illustrative props.
The minutes of the April 12, 1852 meeting of the Society are appended, largely an account of the donations received.
