    Abstract

    A COLLECTION of problems arranged for the use of the students in the Imperial College of Engineering, by the First Whitworth Scholar (1871), and Professor of Drawing in the College. The author's aim has been to arrange the earlier problems so as to render it of service to students to work these while reading Wilson's Geometry, the text-book used in the Mathematical Class. The treatment is mainly founded upon the recognised English text-books, but a novel feature, perhaps, is the extent of space devoted to the conic sections and the higher plane curves, “especially as regards the use of equations to these curves and to the various geometrical elements connected with them.”
