Catalogue Note

A handbook of arithmetic and algebra and their practical applications for apprentice merchants and surveyors.

"It is divided into two sections. The first concerns arithmetic and begins with the basic operations before considering the more advanced topics such as fractions, profit margins, exchange rates, etc. The second section is devoted to practical aspects of algebra and geometry. Each section contains commercial examples, three of which are illustrated with small vignettes" (Tomash & Williams).
