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 FINLAND: "... but does not reach the Arctic Ocean, and 13 m. from the Varanger fjord it turns southwards." 'Arctic' amended from 'Artic'.

ARTICLE FISCHART, JOHANN: "Sie haben Nasen und riechen's nit." 'und' amended from 'vnd'.

ARTICLE FISHER, JOHN: "The constancy of Fisher, while driving Henry to a fury that knew no bounds, won the admiration of the whole Christian world, where he had been long known as one of the most learned and pious bishops of the time." 'Christian' amended from 'Christain'.

ARTICLE FISHKILL LANDING: "... in which the New York Provincial Congress met in August and September 1776." 'Provincial' amended from 'Provinical'.

ARTICLE FITZGERALD, EDWARD: "... until 1873 in the town of Woodbridge; and then until his death at his own house hard by, called Little Grange." 'called' amended from 'ealled'.

ARTICLE FLAMBARD, RANULF: "He profited largely by the tyranny of Rufus, farming for the king a large proportion of the ecclesiastical preferments which were illegally kept vacant, and obtaining for himself the wealthy see of Durham (1099)." 'illegally' amended from 'illegaly'.

ARTICLE FLAMBARD, RANULF: "A bishop, however, was an inconvenient prisoner, and Flambard soon succeeded in effecting his escape from the Tower of London." 'succeeded' amended from 'succeded'.
