Since its publication it has been used, with success, as a textbook, not only in Columbia College, but also in many Colleges, Academies, and High Schools. By a special arrangement with the publishers, the Author is now enabled to publish, in a revised form, as a part of his own Mathematical Series.

In preparing it anew for the press, such alterations and lo improvements have been made as have been suggested by many years of practical experience in its use as a college text-book. The opening chapters have been somewhat simplified, the chapter on logarithms has been extended, a section on inequalities has been added, and the whole has been carefully corrected and revised.
