Catalogue Note

An early arithmetic work. "It begins by presenting the Hindu-Arabic numerals, addition and multiplication tables, squares, cubes and square roots ... thereafter devoted to topics such as mixed radix arithmetic (addition of days, hours, minutes, etc.), including a table that could be used to convert days to hours, etc." (Tomash & Williams).
