    Unfortunately the copy I have of page 386 of the German manual from 1906 is in bad quality and I can't accurately read the formulas 21 and 23. Beside that it appears to be a "sum-sign" in these formulas, for which I don't have any explaination.
    If I understood the previous discussion correctly Wolgang Köberer might have the 1906 issue. Wolgang, will you kindly provide the formulas 21 and 23 and also look for what the assumed "sum-sign" could mean.
