PRESENTATION COPY TO THE DEDICATEE, KING WILLIAM III. Jonas Moore (1617-1679) had died by the time this compilation was published, so the dedication is signed by William Hanway and John Potenger, Moore's sons-in-law. Moore was a teacher of mathematics and he became surveyor general for the royal ordnance; he was instrumental in establishing the Royal Observatory at Greenwich and the Royal Mathematical School at Christ's Hospital. This work was designed as a mathematical handbook for the school, and it contained contributions by Flamsteed, Halley and Peter Perkins.
