PREFACE TO THE NEW EDITION.

IN THIS EDITION, New Examination Papers take the place of the old ones, the questions of the latter being arranged as Miscellaneous Examples.

PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION.

THE SOURCES from which the following Exercises have been taken are sufficiently indicated by the Table of Contents. This collection differs, in two respects, from any with which the author is acquainted; in the first place, the questions are arranged in such a manner that most of the papers embrace various subjects; secondly, 'book-work' is introduced, in order to assimilate the papers to those set at Examinations.

WOOLWICH COMMON: August 1864.

PREFACE TO THE SECOND EDITION.

THIS EDITION Contains about 900 additional Examples, selected from Examination Papers which have been set since the publication of the first Edition. The greater part of the new matter will be found in the Appendix; but the fresh questions in Mixed Mathematics commence at page 287. Considerable pains having been taken in correcting errors, it is hoped that they now amount to a comparatively small number.

WOOLWICH COMMON: January 1867.
