Transcriber's notes:

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

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

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

(4) Letters topped by Macron are represented as [=x].

(5) Letters topped by Breve are represented as [)x].

(6) The following typographical errors have been corrected:

Article CORDUROY: "From the ribbed appearance of the cloth the name corduroy is applied, particularly in America, to a rough road of logs laid transversely side by side, usually across swampy ground." 'America' from 'Amercia'.

Article CORNEILLE, PIERRE: "the only contemporary whose genius entitled him to criticise Corneille." 'entitled' amended from 'entiled'.

Article CORNET: "while in France the instruments with detachable mouthpiece were distinguished by the addition of à bouquin." 'addition' amended from 'adition'.

Article CORNET: "but from the explanation now given, it will be readily understood." Omitted the word 'but' after 'explanation'.

Article CORN LAWS: "and the permission accorded by the statute of 1773 to import foreign corn at any price, to be reexported duty free, was modified by a warehouse duty of 2s. 6d. in addition to the duties on import payable at the time of sale." 'statute' amended from 'statue'.

Article CORONATION: "In connexion with the English coronation a number of claims to do certain services have sprung up, and before each coronation a court of claims is constituted, which investigates and adjudicates on the claims that are made." 'is' amended from 'in'.

Article CORTES, HERNAN: "But although his power was thus confirmed by royal authority, and although he exerted himself to consolidate Spanish domination throughout all Mexico." 'himself' amended from 'himelf'.

Article CORVÉE: "The system of turnpikes, dating from 1663, which gradually extended over the whole of England, lessened the burden of this system of taxation, so far as main roads were concerned." 'The' amended from 'Ths'.

Article COSTUME: "But the garment as explained by Josephus (Ant. iii. 7. 1) was properly a loin cloth (cf. the examples from Punt), and the reason given for its use (Ex. xxviii. 42) points to a later date than the law which enforced the same regard for decency by forbidding the priests to ascend altars with steps (ib. xx. 26)." 'loin cloth' amended from 'lion cloth'.
