[Mathematics] Acquoy, J. Reekenboek voor de Nederlandsche jeugd

Door H. Aeneae. Uitgegeven door de Maarschappy Tot nut van 't algemeen. Meest onöpgelost, en zonder antwoorden voorgesteld. Ontbonder door Jacobus Acquoy. Te Amsterdam, 1796. Manuscript in fine, legible calligraphy, 2 parts in one vol. (parts 1 w. title-p. as mentioned, part 1 starts w. table of contents), (2),80,(2 blank); (1),(5 blank),203,(3 blank) p., cont. vellum, 4to.

Several lvs. at the front with blindst. bookplate of "L.S.D. Steenveld, Amsterdam", some sm. lvs. w. notes added, very good condition. A very similar manuscript by Acquoy ("Reekenboek, voor meisjes, ten dienste der schoolen") w. the same blindst. was previously sold at this auction. Acquoy (1732-1818) was a gifted mathematician who gave lessons in Amsterdam to his grandson (also named) Jacobus (1803-73), who later also published books on mathematics. Our manuscript is presumably by the elder Acquoy. Not an exact copy of the book of H. Aeneae.
