Book cover

First Page:

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

(5) dP stands for the partial derivative symbol, or curled 'd'.

(6) [oo] stands for the infinity symbol, and [int] for the integral symbol.

(7) The following typographical errors have been corrected:

Article DIAMOND: "If this be so the form of the diamond is really the tetrahedron (and the various figures derived symmetrically from it) and not the octahedron". 'octahedron' amended from 'octadehron'.

Article DIARY: "diaries began to be largely written in England, although in most cases without any idea of even eventual publication". 'largely' amended from 'largly'.

Article DICOTYLEDONS: "The arrangement of the conducting tissue in the stem is characteristic; a transverse section of the very young stem shows a number of distinct conducting strands". 'number' amended from 'nunber'.

Article DIEKIRCH: "It remained more or less fortified until the beginning of the 19th century when the French during their occupation levelled the old walls, and substituted the avenues of trees that now encircle the town". 'or' amended from 'for'.

Article DIFFERENCES, CALCULUS OF: "as the second difference of u n, and therefore as corresponding to the value x n"; 'difference' amended from 'dfference'.

Article DINAJPUR: "a town (with a population in 1901 of 13,430) and district of British India, in the Rajshahi division of Eastern Bengal and Assam". 'British' amended from 'Britsh'.
