Catalogue Note

"This is a treatise on plane and spherical trigonometry with, as was usual for Cavalieri, tables of logarithms. The table combines standard trigonometric values with logarithmic ones in what he terms a Canon Duplex (double table) which was standard for its day" (Tomash & Williams p.269).
