PDF An attempt to shew the advantage arising by taking the mean of a number of observations, in practical astronomy.

PDF An investigation of a general rule for resolution of isoperimetrical problems of all orders. PDF Of the reduction of algebraic equations, by the method of surd divisors; containing an explanation of the grounds of that method, as it is laid down by Sir Isaac Newton in his Universal Arithmetick.
