Notes

"New edition" of a work that was extremely popular in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, first published as The School-Master's Guide: or, a Complete System of Practical Arithmetic. The first two printings do not appear to have survived, the earliest edition in ESTC and ICAEW being the third of 1771.
