Abstract. In my translation of Chapter 9 of Bourbaki's
"Integration" (from the paperbound Fascicle XXXV
of the author's "Elements de mathematique" [Hermann,
Paris, 1969]) a number of references to "Topologie
generale" (TG) that were translated to corresponding
items in "General topology" (GT) turned out to be
inadequate because GT was translated from a version
of TG that was not the final version. The details
of the errors thereby introduced, and how they came
about, are chronicled on pages 10 and 20 of the
document "Bourbaki's Integration: An overview"
(item 11-169 of mp_arc).
In brief, I count 10 references to GT that should have
been to TG (more precisely, Volume II of the hardbound
final version, published in 1974), whose Chapter 9,
Section 6 generalizes key results to accomodate
Souslin and Lusin spaces that are Hausdorff but no
longer required to be metrizable (as they were in GT).
