Recorde’s The Grounde of Artes (1543), edited and augmented after the author’s death by John Dee, was the standard arithmetic textbook of the period, passing through numerous editions until 1673, long after the work should have been obsolete. Dee’s contributions were of a practical matter, being sections on foreign exchange and on foreign weights and measures. Dee also added a long poem “I.D. to the earnest Arithmetician” in which he promoted his "Mathematical Praeface" to Billingsley's English translation of Euclid (1570). 

This copy contains a short manuscript biography of the author on B8v in an early hand.
