# An Elementary Treatise on Analytical Geometry, with Numerous by W J. Johnston

By W J. Johnston

This e-book was once initially released ahead of 1923, and represents a replica of a major old paintings, preserving an identical structure because the unique paintings. whereas a few publishers have opted to practice OCR (optical personality acceptance) know-how to the method, we think this results in sub-optimal effects (frequent typographical mistakes, unusual characters and complicated formatting) and doesn't properly protect the ancient personality of the unique artifact. We think this paintings is culturally very important in its unique archival shape. whereas we attempt to appropriately fresh and digitally increase the unique paintings, there are sometimes situations the place imperfections equivalent to blurred or lacking pages, terrible photographs or errant marks can have been brought because of both the standard of the unique paintings or the scanning approach itself. regardless of those occasional imperfections, now we have introduced it again into print as a part of our ongoing international ebook maintenance dedication, offering clients with entry to the very best historic reprints. We savor your realizing of those occasional imperfections, and essentially wish you take pleasure in seeing the publication in a layout as shut as attainable to that meant by means of the unique writer.
