PREFACE
TO
THE
FIRST
EDITION.
In
laying
this
work
before
the
public,
I
think
it
right
to
state
the
object
for
which
it
was
originally
composed,
and
the
circumstances
which
have
in
some
degree
changed
its
destination.
The
treatise
was
originally
designed
for
a
class
of
readers
who
might
be
supposed
to
possess
a
moderate
acquaintance
with
the
phsenomena
and
the
terms
of
astronomy
;
geometrical
notions
sufficient
to
enable
them
to
understand
simple
inferences
from
diagrams
two
or
three
terms
of
algebra
as
applied
to
numbers
but
none
of
that
elevated
science
which
has
always
been
used
in
the
investigation
of
these
subjects,
and
without
which
scarcely
an
attempt
has
been
made
to
explain
them.
I
proposed
to
myself,
therefore,
this
general
design
:
to
explain
the
perturbations
of
the
solar
system,
as
far
as
I
was
able,
without
introducing
an
algebraic
symbol.
It
will
readily
be
believed
that,
after
thus
denying
myself
the
use
of
the
most
powerfulengine
of
mathe-
matics,
I
did
not
expect
to
proceedvery
far.
In
my
progress,
however,
I
was
surprised
to
find
that
a
general
