When the first edition of my Course of Modem Analysis became exhausted, and theS yndics of the Press invited me to prepare a second edition, I determined to introduce many new features into the work. The pressure of other duties prevented me for some time from carrying out this plan, and it seemed as if the appearance of the new edition might be indefinitely postponed.
