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 GAUDEN, JOHN: "... and on the fact that it was admitted by Clarendon, who should have had means of being acquainted with the truth." 'should' amended from 'sould'.

ARTICLE GAWAIN: "In the later Historia of Geoffrey of Monmouth, and its French translation by Wace, Gawain plays an important and 'pseudo historic' rôle." 'Geoffrey' amended from 'Goeffrey'.

ARTICLE GAYA: "... and at which a religious fair is held each September, attended by 10,000 to 20,000 pilgrims." '20,000' amended from '20,0000'.

ARTICLE GECKO: "The arrangement of the lamellae and pads differs much in the various genera and is used for classificatory purposes." 'classificatory' amended from 'classificactory'.

ARTICLE GEDDES, ALEXANDER: "Although under ecclesiastical censures, he had never swerved from a consistent profession of faith as a Catholic; and on his death bed he duly received the last rites of his communion." 'Although' amended from 'Athough'.

ARTICLE GELSEMIUM: "It was first described in 1640 by John Parkinson, who grew it in his garden from seed sent by Tradescant from Virginia; at the present time it is but rarely seen, even in botanical gardens, in Great Britain." 'Britain' amended from 'Britian'.

ARTICLE GEM: "From the Byzantine period downward one peculiarity of gem engraving becomes noticeable." 'peculiarity' amended from 'peculiarty'.

ARTICLE GENEALOGY: "... or that Bilhan points to an old clan associated with Reuben (Gen. xxxv. 22) or Edom (Bilhan, Gen. xxxvi. 27), ..." 'Bilhan' amended from 'Bilhah'.

ARTICLE GENTIANACEAE: "... bright blue corolla, is visited by bumble bees; and G. verna, with a still longer narrower tube, is visited by Lepidoptera." 'bumble' amended from 'humble'.

ARTICLE GENTZ, FRIEDRICH VON: "... but partly supplemented in Österreichs Teilnahme an den Befreiungskriegen (Vienna, 1887) ..." 'Österreichs' amended from 'Öesterreichs'.
