I see this book as it's been scanned in and digitized, and I compare it against my own copy.
Mine is dated 1859 and apart from differences on the colophon page (Harper & Brothers moved their offices between 1851 and 1859) the books appear identical. That is, up until page 266, at which the main text finishes. After that, both books end with a series of (in the 1851 edition) "Miscellaneous Examples" and in the 1859 one: "Examples for Practice". This section in the later edition is an expanded version of that in the earlier edition.
The final pages of the later edition consist of reviews (as advertisements) of Loomis's previous works, described as "Loomis' Course of Mathematics, published by Harper & Brothers, New York".
But I don't understand what this means:
"Designed for Beginners. 12mo, p. 260, Sheep extra, 62 1/2 cents."
I presume "Sheep extra" refers to the binding, which will presumably be leather made from sheepskin. Anyone?
