Excerpt from Mecanique Celeste, Vol. 1

The notation of the author has been strictly adhered to, and the double parentheses, which he has used to denote the partial differentials, have been retained, though at present many mathematicians reject them.

For the sake of a more easy method of reference, to any particular part of the work, or to any single formula, the marginal numbers are inserted. These are frequently referred to, in the translation, and in the notes. The introduction of these numbers is the only alteration which has been made in the original work. In other respects it will be found, that the translation has been as nearly literal, as is consistent with a faithful interpretation of the sense of the author. These marginal references might supersede the use of those made by the author, in a few of the most important formulas, but it was thought best to retain them, because they might possibly be referred to, in quoting from the original work. It must be observed that in citing a single formula, the marginal reference will be found on the same line with the formula; but in referring to a particular sentence, or paragraph, it will generally be on the middle line of it.
