3Title:  Arithmetick: vulgar, decimal, instrumental, algebraical: In four parts. Conteining I. Vulgar arithmetick, in whole numbers and fractions, in a plain and easie method. II. Decimal arithmetick, the ground and reason thereof, and its use illustrated by divers examples. III. Instrumental arithmetick, performed by decimal scales, with more ease and facility then by vulgar or decimal arithmetick, all reductions being wholly avoided. Nothing in this kind having been hitherto published by any IV. Algebraical arithmetick, conteining an abridgement of the precepts of that art, and the use thereof, illustrated by questions of divers kinds. Whereunto is added, the construction and use of several tables of interest and annuities, weights and measures both of our own and other countries. The third edition, corrected and inlarged by the addition of several rules which were not in the former editions. By William Leybourn
