Excerpt from Gravitation: An Elementary Explanation of the Principal Perturbations in the Solar System

The treatise was originally designed for a class of readers who might be supposed to possess a moderate acquaintance with the phaenomena 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.
