Scope/Content: Manuscript. Scope/Content: Manuscript mathematical cipher book with additional poetry, riddles and childish doodles in other, later hands. Written in a calligraphic hand, with embellishments and illustrations, the mathematical text, which demonstrates a variety of practical applications for arithmetic, is incomplete. Many pages bear only headings without any mathematical tables or examples below. A slightly later hand has copied poetry and riddles on the blank versos of many of the pages, while an even later child's hand (or hands) has made numerous pencil doodles in the latter half of the volume, including lists of flowers and trees, pictures of people and houses and an alphabet. Some of the mathematical examples shown feature the years 1723, 1724 and 1725. Condition: Bound in grey paper wrappers.
