In Mr. ALFRED HIGGINS, C.B., who died 25th October, 1903,
the Society and the antiquarian world at large have
sustained a severe loss. Elected a Fellow in January, 1888,
he soon afterwards contributed a paper on recent
discoveries of the apparatus used in playing the game of
KOTTABOS. This was published in Archaeologia. Another
paper, entitled " Notes on the Church of St. Francis or
Tempio Malatestiano at Rimini " was published in
Archaeologia, 1891. In 1892 he communicated an account of
two painted account book covers from Siena, and the next
year read a paper on a twelfth or thirteenth century marble
statue of the enthroned Madonna at Sta. Margherita in the
Genoese Riviera. In 1899 a descrip- tion of an illuminated
and emblazoned copy of the statutes of Edward III.,
illustrating the genealogy of the Fitzwilliam family, was
printed in Archaeologia. Mr. Higgins was an accepted
authority on Italian art. A valuable paper by him on
Florentine Art as regards sculpture in England will be
found in the Archaeological Journal for 1894. He was a most
amiable gentleman, and always willing to assist antiquarian
students. He was Deputy- Accountant- General of the Army
from 1900, and in 1902 received the C.B.
