THE third volume of this work has followed very closely upon the second, which was only published last year, and is in every respect a worthy successor to it. It is mainly concerned with the theory of series, which was begun in the second volume, and then proceeds to the theory of measurement. A further and final volume will deal with geometry. To some extent the treatment has been influenced by the coming volume, especially in the section devoted to the theory of measurement. For the same reason, a special section is included, containing the theory of cyclic families, such as the angles about a given point in a given plane.
