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) The following typographical errors have been corrected:

ARTICLE EKATERINOSLAV: "Nearly 40,000 persons find occupation in factories, the most important being iron works and agricultural machinery works, though there are also tobacco ... " 'important' amended from 'imporant'.

ARTICLE ELASTICITY: "The limits of perfect elasticity as regards change of shape, on the other hand, are very low, if they exist at all, for glasses and other hard, brittle solids; but a class of metals including copper, brass, steel, and platinum are very perfectly elastic as regards distortion, provided that the distortion is not too great." Missing 'and' after 'steel'.

ARTICLE ELASTICITY: "The parts of the radii vectors within the sphere ..." 'vectors' amended from 'vectores'.

ARTICLE ELBE: "Its total length is 725 m., of which 190 are in Bohemia, 77 in the kingdom of Saxony, and 350 in Prussia, the remaining 108 being in Hamburg and other states of Germany." 'Its' amended from 'it'.

ARTICLE ELBE: "Finally, in 1870, 1,000,000 thalers were paid to Mecklenburg and 85,000 thalers to Anhalt, which thereupon abandoned all claims to levy tolls upon the Elbe shipping, and thus navigation on the river became at last entirely free. 'Anhalt' amended from 'Anhal'.

ARTICLE ELBE: "... after driving back at Lobositz the Austrian forces which were hastening to their assistance; but only nine months later he lost his reputation for "invincibility" by his crushing defeat at Kolin ..." 'assistance' amended from 'asistance'.

ARTICLE ELECTRICITY: "De la Rive reviews the subject in his large Treatise on Electricity and Magnetism, vol. ii. ch. iii. The writer made a contribution to the discussion in 1874 ..." 'Magnetism' amended from 'Magnestism'.

ARTICLE ELECTRICITY SUPPLY: "... or by means of overhead wires within restricted areas, but the limitations proved uneconomical and the installations were for the most part merged into larger undertakings sanctioned by parliamentary powers." 'limitations' amended from 'limitatons'.

ARTICLE ELECTROKINETICS: "A vector can most conveniently be represented by a symbol such as a ib, where a stands for any length of a units measured horizontally and b for a length b units measured vertically, and the symbol i is a sign of perpendicularity ..." 'symbol' amended from 'smybol'.

ARTICLE ELECTROSCOPE: "The collapse of the gold leaf is observed through an aperture in the case by a microscope, and the time taken by the gold leaf to fall over a certain distance is proportional to the ionizing current, that is, to the intensity of the radioactivity of the substance. 'microscope' amended from 'miscroscope'.
