Book cover

Transcriber's notes:

(1) Numbers following letters (without space) like C2 were originally printed in subscript. Letter subsctipts 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) The following typographical errors have been corrected:

Article DOLOMITES, THE: "On the north it is limited by the railway line from Innichen to Franzensfeste, and on the south by the railway and road from Trent to Feltre." 'Franzensfeste' amended from 'Franzenfeste'.

Article DOMICILE: "As the result of the most recent English and Scottish cases it may be laid down that the necessary intention is incompatible with the contemplation by the person in question of any event on the occurrence of which his residence in the territory in question would cease ..." 'occurrence' from 'occurence'.

Article DORSETSHIRE: "It contains the following municipal boroughs Blandford Forum (pop. 3649), Bridport (5710), Dorchester, the county town (9458)," 'It' from 'In'.

Article DORT, SYNOD OF: "During the interval between the citation and the appearance of the accused, the professorial members of the synod were instructed to prepare themselves to be able to confute the Arminian errors, and the synod occupied itself with deliberations as to a new translation of the Bible ..." 'were' amended from 'was'.

Article DOWN: "There are several popular watering places on the coast, notably Newcastle, Donaghadee, Ardglass and Rosstrevor." 'watering places' amended from 'watering place'.

Article DRACO: "hoplite census, nobody to hold office a second time until all duly qualified persons had been exhausted, fine of one drachma for non attendance in Boule ..." 'been' amended from 'beeen'.

Article DRAMA: "Though in some respects Sicilian comedy seems to have resembled the Middle rather than the Old Attic comedy, its subjects sometimes, like those of the latter, coincided with the myths of tragedy, of which they were doubtless parodies." 'rather' amended from 'rathet'.

Article DRAMA: "and the wily sharper (dorsenus) became accepted comic types, and, with others of a similar kind, were handed down, to reappear in the modern Italian drama." 'similar' amended from 'smiliar'.
