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.London: Printed for the Author; and sold by T. Longman, 1762 Stock Code: 131614
NotesFirst 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.
Duoedcimo (165 x 96 mm). 20th-century marbled boards.
Refurbished with front joint and head of spine repaired; loose leaves re-inserted. A very good copy.
