This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1859 edition. Excerpt: ...Rem.--Parentheses ( ) in the above examples signify that the part enclosed may be omitted.
