What Our Customers Say...
Early Edition, Illustrated, Rebound, Scarce
A scarce work, the fourteenth edition of this oft-reprinted work.
ESTC citation number T30868.
Illustrated with a frontispiece.
One leaf of adverts to the rear.
Edward Cocker's popular educational volume on mathematics, an important work which was used to teach maths in British schools for more than 150 years.
Published posthumously, there has been arguments that Cocker was not the author, and that the work was by the editor, John Hawkins, using Cocker's name to gain more respect for the work.
Rebound in a modern cloth binding, with new endpapers. Externally, smart. Only a few very light marks to the boards. Internally, firmly bound.

Repair to the advert to the rear, with loss of text. Small tide mark to the margin of the last few pages.
