“[Digges’s] Tectonicon was an elementary treatise designed to give simple instruction in the use of the carpenter’s ruler, carpenter’s square and Jacob’s staff. It was first published in 1556, and this edition, one hundred years later, confirms its popularity” (Tomash & Williams).

Bedwell’s work is on the use of the trigonicum, an instrument devised by his uncle Thomas, and similar to instruments described by Digges in his work.
