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) Letters with a dot below are represented as [x.].

(6) The following typographical errors have been corrected:

Article DIPLOMATIC: "Of later date was the Ars dictaminis of Bernard of Chartres of the 12th century." Omitted a superfluous '('.

Article DIPTERA: "they are simply Cyclorrhapha much modified owing to parasitism, and in view of the closely similar mode of reproduction in the tsetse flies the special designation Pupipara should be abandoned." 'similar' amended from 'similiar'.

Article DIPTERA: "The famous Tertiary beds at Florissant, Colorado, have yielded a considerable number of remarkably well preserved Tipulidae." 'of' amended from 'or'.

Article DIRECTORS: "They have to carry on the company's business, to extend and consolidate it, and to do this they must have a free hand and a large discretion to deal with the exigencies of the commercial situation." 'commercial' amended from 'commerical'.

Article DIVERS: "But so exhausting is the work, and so severe the strain on the system, that, after a number of dives in deep water, the men often become insensible, and blood sometimes bursts from nose, ears and mouth." 'sometimes' amended from 'sometime'.

Article DIVORCE: "It is interesting to compare these provisions as to children with the practice at present under English law, which in this respect reflects so closely the spirit of the law of Rome." 'children' amended from 'childern'.

Article DLUGOSZ, JAN: "The office of administering the cardinal's estate was a very ungrateful one, for the family resented the liberal benefactions of their kinsman to the Church and the university, and accused Dlugosz of exercising undue influence". 'university' amended from 'univesity'.

Article DOCK: "The basins of such ports are always accessible for vessels of the draught they provide for; but they require most efficient protection, and, unlike tidal ports, they are not able on exceptional occasions to admit a vessel of larger draught than the basins have been formed to accommodate." 'on' amended from 'to'.
