In the following paper I propose to give a short account of Dr Ernst Kötter's purely geometrical theory of the algebraic plane curves. This theory is developed in a treatise which, in 1886, gained the prize of the Berlin Royal Academy; but the contents of my paper are also partly drawn from a course of lectures delivered by Dr Kötter in the University of Berlin, W.S. 1887–88.
