RAMSBOTTOM, Richard.

Fractions Anatomized:

or, the doctrine of parts made plain and easy to the meanest capacity. On a plan entirely new. To which is added, a concise but full explanation of duodecimal arithmetic. Also, rules to young officers of excise, for the examination of their own books, and rectifying errors.

Notes

First edition of this guide to calculating sums involving fractions, intended for the use of young excise officers. The author seems to have left little trace, and they published no other known books. Uncommon, with ESTC locating eight copies in British and American institutional holdings.
