Third edition of Wells’s successful mathematical handbook.

Though subsequently dismissed as ‘more voluminous than distinguished’ (ODNB), the educational writings of Edward Wells (1667–1727) proved both popular with the public and profitable for their author. The best known, the present work offers an introduction to mathematics, principally astronomy and geometry in their practical applications.
