By 'combinatory analysis', the author understands the part of combinatorics now known as 'algebraic combinatorics'. In this book, the classical results of the outstanding 19th century school of British mathematicians are presented with great clarity and completeness. From the Introduction (1915): ""The object of this work is, in the main, to present to mathematicians an account of theorems in combinatory analysis which are of a perfectly general character, and to show the connection between them by as far as possible bringing them together as parts of a general doctrine. It may appeal also to others whose reading has not been very extensive. They may not improbably find here some new points of view and suggestions which may prompt them to original investigation in a fascinating subject..."".In the present volume there appears a certain amount of original matter which has not before been published. It involves the author's preliminary researches in combinatory theory which have been carried out during the last thirty years. For the most part it is original work which, however, owes much to valuable papers by Cayley, Sylvester, and Hammond.
