Notes

General notes:
Although textually identical with the 1777 edition, to the extent of line-to-line correspondence, this version has been re-set, as indicated by the change in page numbers, different font for Greek characters, absence of catchwords, colophon on last recto, etc. The plates have also been re-engraved, and are smaller than in 1777, not only in terms of plate mark, but in the detail of the diagrams.
