G. Firth mathematic notebook
This collection contains one paper vellum-bound, handwritten mathematical notebook dated from 1797 to 1799 belonging to G. Firth, a student who attended Butterwick School in the county of Lincolnshire, United Kingdom. The notebook contains eighty-five handwritten pages of calculations and notes. Girth divided the notebook into the following headings: the "Mensuration of Surfaces," "Mensuration of Solids," "Timber Measuring," and "Vaulted and Arched Roofs," written in large calligraphy. Beneath these titles are definitions, rules, problems, and calculations. Some include detailed, finely drawn geometric, three-dimensional diagrams. Tipped in at the end of the book is a hand-colored drawing of a pink flower.
