Transcriber's notes:

(1) Numbers following letters (without space) like C2 were originally printed in subscript. Letter subscripts are preceded by an underscore, like C n.

(2) Characters following a carat (^) were printed in superscript.

(3) Side notes were relocated to function as titles of their respective paragraphs.

(4) Macrons and breves above letters and dots below letters were not inserted.

(5) The following typographical errors have been corrected:

ARTICLE CHALCIS: "Chalcis subsequently became a member of both the Delian Leagues. In the Hellenistic period it gained importance as a fortress by which the Macedonian rulers controlled central Greece". 'importance' amended from 'inportance'.

ARTICLE CHAMISSO, ADELBERT VON: "He often deals with gloomy and sometimes with ghastly and repulsive subjects; and even in his lighter and gayer productions there is an undertone of sadness or of satire". 'productions' Amended from 'proudctions'.

ARTICLE CHANNEL ISLANDS: "... Burhou and Ortach, and numerous other islets west of it, and west again the notorious Casquets, an angry group of jagged rocks, on the largest of which is a powerful lighthouse". 'an' amended from 'and'.
