Mathematics, the science of structure, order, and relation that has evolved from elemental practices of counting, measuring, and describing the shapes of objects. It deals with logical reasoning and quantitative calculation, and its development has involved an increasing degree of . Tools and Mathematics: Instruments for Learning is one of a kind, serving as the encyclopedia of learning tools in mathematics. The volume of the book is quite daunting, with a total of 19 chapters, each very dense with content. Part 1 (6 chapters) provides an overview of the book and discusses tool use in the history of mathematics. Mathematical-instrument makers were the people who took the skills of medieval clockmakers into a much wider world. Small wonder that one of their number brought the steam engine to the point where it dominated the nineteenth century.

To follow a trade in the city of London, it was necessary to be a Freeman, and this meant being free of a city company; as Joyce Brown has shown, the Grocers' Company was the entry for many mathematical instrument makers, including George Adams Sr. and Jr., and George Jr.'s brother Dudley.

Millburn makes good use of the Grocers' records. ABSTRACTIn considering the appropriate use of the terms “science” and “scientific instrument,” tracing the history of “mathematical instruments” in the early modern period is offered as an illuminating alternative to the historian's natural instinct to follow the guiding lights of originality and innovation, even if the trail transgresses contemporary boundaries.
