This book is amazing. But I'd suggest everybody to read the version edited by Martin Gardner in 1998[1]. The first version written by Thompson ignored the use of limit, and it also used terms that aren't used anymore. For example, the older book used the term 'differential coefficient' which is now known as derivatives[2].
