This book is strictly, what its title expresses — Popular Mathematics; that is to say, a book which is meant to be read through, and which is intended to inspire those who, from too tender age or want of opportunities and means, have not acquired a knowledge of mathematical science, with a general perception of its nature, a feeling of its power as an instrument both of wisdom and of working, and the love of a farther acquaintance with it.
