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 FLORENCE: "... while the new structures erected in their place, especially those in the Piazza Vittorio Emanuele, are almost uniformly ugly and quite out of keeping with Florentine architecture." 'Piazza' amended from 'Piaza'.

ARTICLE FLORIDA: "Not until the last decade of the 17th century did the Spanish authorities attempt to extend the settlements beyond the east coast." 'Not' amended from 'no'.

ARTICLE FLOWER: "The exine is a firm membrane, which defines the figure of the pollen grain, and gives colour to it." 'exine' amended from 'extine'.

ARTICLE FOG: "... the cooling of air by rarefaction due to the reduction of pressure on ascent, cannot be invoked, except in the case of the fogs forming the cloud caps of hills, which are perhaps not fairly included." 'rarefaction' amended from 'rarefraction'.

ARTICLE FOOTBALL: "Association football is indeed, from the standpoint of the spectator, a much brighter game than it was in its infancy, the result of the new methods bringing every one of the eleven players into full relief throughout the game." 'throughout' amended from 'throughtout'.

ARTICLE FOOTBALL: "This means that one or more of his fellows must accompany and shield him as he runs, blocking off any opponent who tries to tackle him." 'tries' amended from 'trys'.
