Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1864 edition.

The second is formed of two lines, as the first, but the curved line touches the straight line at the top and middle on the right side. 3. The third has the curve at the left of the straight line, and touches it at the top and middle. 4. The fourth has the curve at the left of the straight line, and touches it at the middle and base. 5.
