Page 466 is essentially illegible. So the first sentence of the .pdf file: "This is a digital copy of a book that was preserved for generations on library shelves before it was carefully scanned by Google as part of a project
to make the world’s books discoverable online" does not seem entirely true.
The word "carefully" seems to be an overstatement.

Page 297 - It is not improbable that the surface waves here investigated play an important part in earthquakes, and in the collision of elastic solids. Diverging in two dimensions only, they must acquire at a great distance from the source a continually increasing preponderance.
Page 4 - The modulus of the elasticity of any substance is a column of the same substance, capable of producing a pressure on its base which is to the weight causing a certain degree of compression, as the length of the substance is to the diminution of its length.

The local effect of force applied at the origin being very great, we suppose the origin to be excluded by a hemispherical surface. The displacement expressed by (15) could be maintained in the body by tractions over the plane boundary, which are expressed by the equations ' AX Y = ^ Ay Z -0 ' *° 5' ^~U> and by tractions over the hemispherical boundary, which are expressed by...
