Napier, John, 1550-1617 (of Merchiston, mathematician)
Found in 2 Collections and/or Records:
The Macclesfield Collection principally comprises the archives of John Collins (1625-1683) and William Jones (1675-1749). As well as being mathematicians in their own right, both men corresponded with leading scientific figures of their day and so the collection includes autograph material by Isaac Newton, Edmond Halley, Henry Briggs, Roger Cotes, Henry Oldenburg and Robert Hooke.
A note on f.2v reads: "29th Jany 1740 Saw Mr Hoddart". Otherwise this is a MS copy of Napier's logarithms.
