viii, pp 493 [3]. 'Mathematician's Guide' with a fine fold-out plate of 13 'moveable cuts' or volvelles. Recently deaccessioned from the library of Ampleforth Abbey and bound in speckled calf, cracking along outer hinges but binding sound, an old Ampleforth library paper lozenge shaped sticker to spine. Nineteenth century purple gothic style stamp on first free endpaper: 'S. Laurent Bibliotheca Monasterii Apud Ampleforth'. A little browning to margins of first few leaves and similar to the margins of the final few leaves. The 'moveable cuts' are all present and bound in as called for. This is a reissue of the 1730 edition, with a different titlepage and signature B reset. It includes several sections applying trigonometry to sailing and elements of spherical trigonometry. ESTC locates two copies in the UK and 3 in the USA only; Copac adds a further 5 UK locations.
