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) [root] stands for the root symbol; [alpha], [beta], etc. for greek letters.

(6) The following typographical errors have been corrected:

ARTICLE FALLIÈRES, CLÉMENT ARMAND: "He was elected on the first ballot by 449 votes against 371 for his opponent, Paul Doumer." 'against' amended from 'againt'.

ARTICLE FARINI, LUIGI CARLO: "As a member of the Sardinian parliament and as a journalist Farini was one of the staunchest supporters of Cavour (q.v.), and strongly favoured the proposal that Piedmont should participate in the Crimean War, ..." 'Crimean' amended from 'Cimean'.

ARTICLE FARMERS' MOVEMENT: "Nor could politics be excluded, though officially tabooed; for economics must be considered by social idealists, and economics everywhere ran into politics." 'tabooed' amended from 'tatooed'.

ARTICLE FARNESE: "Of these the most famous was Pierluigi Farnese (1503 1547), who served in the papal army in various campaigns, but also took part in the sack of Rome in 1527." 'campaigns' amended from 'compaigns'.

ARTICLE FASTING: "Confucianism ought perhaps to be named as one. Zoroastrianism is frequently given as another, but hardly correctly." 'correctly' amended from 'corrrectly'.

ARTICLE FEATHER : "The plumage in nestling birds is still further complicated by the fact that it may be almost, or entirely, composed of pre plumulae; that is to say, of down feathers which are later succeeded by adult down feathers." 'further' ameded from 'futher'.

ARTICLE FELTHAM, OWEN : "He is famous chiefly as the author of a volume entitled Resolves, Divine, Moral and Political, containing one hundred short and pithy essays." 'He' amended from 'Hs'.

ARTICLE FÉNELON, FRANÇOIS DE SALIGNAC DE LA MOTHE : "Tender hearted he might be in practice; but toleration he declares synonymous with 'cowardly indulgence and false compassion .'" 'compassion' amended from 'compasssion'.

ARTICLE FÉNELON, FRANÇOIS DE SALIGNAC DE LA MOTHE : "Followed thereon an independent philosophical Treatise on the Existence of God, wherein Fénelon rewrote Descartes in the spirit of St Augustine." 'philosophical' amended from 'philsophical'.
