Catalogue Note

"This is the second edition of the earliest work written in English on the design of sundials and related instruments. It was first published in 1593, and the table of sines that occupies the final [sixteen] unnumbered leaves ranks as the first trigonometric table published in England" (Tomash & Williams). This is Fale's only known publication.
