Notes:
"The first actual premium list issued was that of 1756, and this only exists in manuscript. The first printed list is the second issued, and that is dated 1758. From that date the lists were issued annually. Till the publication of the first volume of Transactions, in 1783, the lists were issued separately; from 1783 they were included in each volume of the Transactions, besides being printed separately ... From 1843 to 1847 the list was only issued in alternate years. With the grant of the charter in 1847 the society's system of prize-giving practically came to an end.
Special prizes were offered and awarded from time to time, but the practice of issuing a general list of subjects for awards, though it was not formally abandoned, was really obsolete. A sort of attempt to renew it was made in 1863*, when a list of the old character was published in the Journal. The last such list appeared in 1873 [Premium list for the sessions 1873-4-5]" -- Sir H.T. Wood, A history of the Royal society of arts, 1913, p. 238-239.
"A list of subjects for premiums was published for the sessions 1863-4 and 1864-5." -- p. 489.
