Wentworth's Trigonometries.


HE aim has been to furnish just so much of Trigonometry as is actually taught in our best schools and colleges. The principles have been unfolded with the utmost brevity consistent with simplicity and clearness, and interesting problems have been selected with a view to awaken a real love for the study. Much time and labor have been spent in devising the simplest proofs for the propositions, and in exhibiting the best methods of arranging the logarithmic work. Answers are included.

HE object of the work on Surveying and Navigation is to present these subjects in a clear and intelligible way, according to the best methods in actual use; and also to present them in so small a compass, that students in general may find the time to acquire a competent knowledge of these very interesting and important studies. Answers are included.

S. J. Kirkwood, Prof. of Mathematics, University of Wooster, O.: Wentworth's Algebra, Geometry, and Trigonometry are excellent textbooks. (Dec. 15, 1883.)

Otis H. Robinson, Prof. of Mathematics, University of Rochester: I think Wentworth's Surveying an admirable introduction to the study of the subject. (May 28, 1883.)

Wentworth & Hill's Five-Place Logarithmic and Trigonometric Tables.

By G. A. WENTWORTH, A.M., and G. A. HILL, A.M.

Seven Tables (for Trigonometry and Surveying): Cloth. 8vo. 79 pages. Mailing Price, 55 cents; Introduction, 50 cents.

Complete (for Trigonometry, Surveying, and Navigation): Half morocco. Svo. 158 pages. Mailing Price, $1.10; Introduction, $1.00.

HESE Tables have been prepared mainly from Gauss's Tables,

and are designed for the use of schools and colleges. They are preceded by an introduction, in which the nature and use of logarithms are explained, and all necessary instruction given for using the tables. They are printed in large type with very open spacing. Compactness, simple arrangement, and figures large enough not to strain the eyes, are among the points in their favor.

HE exercises consist of a great number of easy problems for beginners, and enough harder ones for more advanced pupils. The problems of each section are carefully graded, and some of the more difficult sections can be omitted without destroying the unity of the work. The book can be used in connection with any textbook on Geometry as soon as the geometrical processes of reasoning are well understood.

By G. A. WENTWORTH. Revised edition. 12mo. Half morocco. 301 pages. Mailing Price, $1.35; for introduction, $1.25; allowance in exchange, 30 cents.

THE aim of this work is to present the elementary parts of the subject in the best form for class-room use.

The connection between a locus and its equation is made perfectly clear in the opening chapter.

The exercises are well graded and designed to secure the best mental training.

By adding a supplement to each chapter provision is made for a shorter or more extended course, as the time given to the subject will permit.

The book is divided into chapters as follows:

PART I. Plane Geometry. I. Loci and their Equations; II. The Straight Line; III. The Circle; IV. Different Systems of Co-ordinates; V. The Parabola; VI. The Ellipse; VII. The Hyperbola; VIII. Loci of the Second Order; IX. Higher Plane Curves. PART II. Solid Geometry. I. The Point; II. The Plane; III. The Straight Line; IV. Surfaces of Revolution.

J. L. Patterson, Teacher of Mathematics, Lawrenceville School, N.J.: I do not know of any text-book for beginners in this subject which can compare with it for class-room use.

(Jan. 4, 1887.)

E. Miller, Prof. of Mathematics, University of Kansas, Lawrence : As a book for beginners, it is admirable in all its arrangements and features. The great number of problems scattered through it will largely relieve it of that abstract analysis which is so often a terror to students. The book is, like the other works of Professor Wentworth, a good thing. (Nov. 18, 1886.)

A Treatise on Plane Surveying.

By DANIEL CARHART, C.E., Professor of Civil Engineering in the Western University of Pennsylvania, Allegheny. Illustrated. 8vo. Half leather. xvii +498 pages. Mailing Price, $2.00; for introduction, $1.80.

THIS work covers the whole ground of Plane Surveying. It illustrates and describes the instruments employed, their adjustments and uses; it exemplifies the best methods of solving the ordinary problems occurring in practice, and furnishes solutions for many special cases which not infrequently present themselves. It is the result of twenty years' experience in the field and technical schools, and the aim has been to make it extremely practical, having in mind always that to become a reliable surveyor the student needs frequently to manipulate the various surveying instruments in the field, to solve many examples in the class-room, and to exercise good judgment in all these operations. Not only, therefore, are the different methods of surveying treated, and directions for using the instruments given, but these are supplemented by various field exercises to be performed, by numerous examples to be wrought, and by many queries to be answered.

Chapter I. Chain Surveying.

II. Compass and Transit Surveying.

III. Declination of the Needle.



[blocks in formation]


VI. Government Surveying.

VII. City Surveying. Including the Principles of Levelling. “VIII. Mine Surveying. Including the Elements of Topography.

The following Tables have been added: Logarithms of numbers; Approximate equation of time; Logarithms of trigonometric functions; For determining with greater accuracy than the preceding; Lengths of degrees of latitude and longitude; Miscellaneous formulas, and equivalents of metres, chains, and feet; Traverse; Natural sines and cosines; Natural tangents and cotangents.

The judicial functions of surveyors, as given by Chief Justice Cooley, are set forth in an appendix.

The work is published just as this Catalogue goes to press, so that full notices cannot be given. Send for the special circular.
