d'Alembert, Jean le Rond (1717-1783), et al. Encyclopédie Méthodique. Mathématiques, Par MM. d'Alembert, l'Abbé Bossut, de la Lande, le Marquis de Condorcet, &c. Panckoucke, Paris & Ploteux, Liège, Four volumes. 1784, 1785, 1789/1792, 1797?, HB. Turner F5.13/1-4. Since this work comes in many forms, I give details below. Panckoucke's Représentations in Vol. 3 imply this is a 3 volume work and Vol. 4 definitely seems to be from a different version of the work. An inserted note gives the detailed catalogue entry for another copy in the With Turner Collection. This says the 3 volume work was issued with alternative TPs, one as above and another with title: Dictionnaire Encyclopédique des Mathématiques.
Vol. 1, labelled A on spine. Half title for entire work, backed by list of authors; TP; Discours Préliminaire, pp. i cxiv; entries: A – E, pp. 1-721, with Errata on p. 722.
Vol. 2, labelled F on spine. Half title for entire work, backed by list of authors; TP; the list of authors is slightly different and the TP has an additional author, Charles, inserted after Condorcet; entries: F – R , pp. 1-787.
Vol. 3, labelled S on spine. Half title for entire work, backed by list of authors; TP; the list of authors is slightly different and the TP has an additional author, Charles, inserted after Condorcet; entries: S – Z, pp. 1-174; Additions et Corrections Pour la partie Astronomique, pp. 175-176; Supplément au Dictionnaire de Mathématiques, pp. 177-181, with Errata on p. 181; Table de Lecture, pp. 182-184. This is followed by the following.
Encyclopédie Méthodique. Dictionnaire des Jeux, Faisant suite au Tome III des Mathématiques. Panckoucke, Paris, 1792. TP & Avertissement on pp. i, iii; entries A – W, pp. 1-315; Table, p. 316; 16 plates, some double-page. The above mentioned note says this part is by Jacques Lacombe. [NOTE: there is another work: Dictionnaire Encyclopedique des Amusemens des Sciences Mathématiques et Physiques, Panckoucke, 1792, which has 900pp and includes much material from the 1725 edition of Ozanam, Decremps, etc. I have PHOTOCOPY of 16 of the plates from Slocum.]
Représentations Du Sieur Panckoucke, Entrepreneur de l'Encyclopédie Méthodique, à Messieurs les Souscripteurs de cet Ouvrage. No TP, p. i has the given title as a heading and continues to p. xxviii, which is a long list of authors. Tableau et Apperçu, pp. 1-50; État du Nombre des Dictionnaires ..., pp. 51-54; Tableau Général, pp. 55-56.
Vol. 4, labelled Planches on spine, with slightly larger pages. Inserted TP: Recueil de Planches du Dictionnaire Encyclopédique des Mathématiques. Henri Agasse, Paris, 1797 – but it's not clear if this refers to a list of plates which is missing. This is followed by plates, some double-page, for the older division of the Encyclopédie into topics and including non-mathematical plates: Géométrie, 16 plates; Sections Coniques, 3 plates; Trigonométrie, 1 plate; Arpentage, 2 plates; Algèbre et Arithmétique, 3 plates; Analyse, 2 plates; Mécanique, 9 plates; Hydrostatique, Hydrodynamique et Hydraulique, 7 plates; Hydraulique, Machine de Marli, 2 plates; Hydraulique, Pompe du Reservoir de l'egout, 1 unnumbered plate; Hydraulique, Pompe pour les Incendies et Pompes à bras, 1 unnumbered plate; Hydraulique, Machine de Mr. Dupuis, 2 plates; Hydraulique, Moulin à vent de Meudon, 1 plate; Hydraulique, Machine de Nymphembourg; 2 plates; Hydraulique, Pompe à feu, 6 plates; Optique, 6 plates; Perspective, 1 plate; Astronomie, 43 plates.

Aryabhata (= Āryabhata (I)) [NOTE: ţ denotes a t with a dot under it and ş denotes an s with a dot under it.] (476- ). Āryabhatīya. 499. Critically edited and translated into English by Kripa Shankar Shukla, with K. V. Sarma. 3 vols., Indian National Science Academy, New Delhi, 1976, HB. (Vol. 1, edited by Shukla, gives the text and English translation. Vol. 2, edited by Shukla and Sarma, is the commentary Āryabhatīya-Bhāşya, written by Bhaskara I in 629, with gaps filled from the later commentary of Someśvara, with translation of his examples. Aryabhata rarely gives numerical examples, so Bhaskara I provided them and these were later used by other Indian writers such as Chaturveda, 860. Vol. 3, edited by Sarma, is the commentary of Sūryadeva Yajvan. Prof. Shukla has sent a photocopy of an introductory booklet: Āryabhata Indian Mathematician and Astronomer (5th century A.D.), which is an abbreviated version of the introductory material of Vol. 1, with some extensions relating Aryabhata to other writers.) There is an older translation by Walter Eugene Clark as: The Âryabhatîya of Âryabhata; Univ. of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1930. (There was an Aryabhata II, c950.)
