Seller ID:   0001663

On offer are a super pair [2] of 1809 manuscript cypher/mathematics books handwritten by David Wiley who, casual research finds, was a farmer and veteran of the War of 1812. It appears that David was born in Hopewell Pennsylvania and later of Harford Maryland, near Baltimore. Book 1 measuring 13" x 8", has a marbled softcover which is lightly worn, and contains about 70 pages that are all written in a nice but sometimes uneven calligraphic hand. Book 2 has about 59 pages [last 2-3 pages show 1812 trade transactions using his learned skills], covers absent and slightly small than Book 1 as such. Equations include: apothecary weights, avoirdupois weights, troy weights, promiscuous questions, addition of federal money, vulgar fractions, interest, insurance commission and brokerage, compound interest, barter, fellowship, foreign exchange+++ Both books have faults: staining, chipping, some page losses but hardly any loss of text. Overall Fair+.
