PREFACE.

THIS book contains little more than what is required for the solution of spherical triangles and related simple practical problems. The articles on spherical geometry are necessary for those who have not already studied that subject; for others, they provide a useful review. More than usual attention has been given to the measurement of solid angles. The explanations in connection with the astronomical problems are somewhat fuller than is customary in elementary text-books on spherical trigonometry.

I am indebted to Mr. W. B. Fite, Ph.B., Fellow in Mathematics at Cornell University, for his kind assistance in reading the proof-sheets; and to Mr. A. T. Bruegel, M.M.E., of the Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, N.Y., for the pleasing character of the diagrams.
