The Reckoner's Art: Reading and Writing Mathematics in Early Modern England

Wednesday, January 16, 2008 to Saturday, February 16, 2008

Beinecke Rare Book and Manuscript Library

Mathematics became an essential part of literate culture in England in the early modern period. This exhibition showcases the means, serious and playful, by which readers learned, practiced, and implemented mathematics in England, from the mid-sixteenth through the eighteenth century. Drawing on the Beinecke Library's print and manuscript collections of early modern English material, the exhibition includes student exercise books, almanacs, textbooks, illustrations, account books, poems, literature, and instruments made out of paper. [ca. 60 items]
