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) Macrons and breves above letters and dots below letters were not inserted.

(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) Letters followed with a grave accent "`" have originally dots above.

(8) The following typographical errors have been corrected:

ARTICLE DYER, JOHN: "His poems were collected by Dodsley in 1770, and by Mr Edward Thomas in 1903 for the Welsh Library, vol. iv." 'poems' amended from 'peoms'.

ARTICLE EAR: "The membranous semicircular canals are very much smaller in section than the bony; in the ampulla of each is a ridge..." 'the' amended from 'tbe'.

ARTICLE EARTH, FIGURE OF THE: "O. Callandreau, 'Mémoire sur la théorie de la figure des planètes,' Ann. obs. de Paris (1889);..." 'Callandreau' amended from 'Callendreau'.

ARTICLE EATON, THEOPHILUS: "In October 1639 a form of government was adopted, based on the Mosaic Law, and Eaton was elected governor..." 'Mosaic' amended from 'Mosiac'.

ARTICLE ECCLESIASTES: "A particular instance is mentioned (ix. 13 15) of a beleaguered city saved by a wise man; but the man happened to be poor, and no one remembered him." 'beleaguered' amended from 'beleagured'.

ARTICLE ECCLESIASTES: "Such assertions as those of ii. 26 (God gives joy to him who pleases him, and makes the sinner toil to lay up for the latter),..." 'and' amended from 'amd'.

ARTICLE ECCLESIASTES: "This disagreement comes largely from the attempts made to find definitely expressed Greek philosophical dogmas in the book; such formulas it has not, but the general air of Greek reflection seems unmistakable. The scepticism of Koheleth differs from that of Job in quality and scope..." 'the' originally repeated twice.

ARTICLE ECCLESIASTICAL JURISDICTION: "In the first case, they may be punished by the ordinary of the place, acting as delegate of the pope without special appointment (Conc. Trid. Sess. vi. c. 3)." 'special' amended from 'speical'.
