The Elements of ALGEBRA, in a New and Easy Method; with their Use and Application, in the Solution of a great Variety of Arithmetical and Geometrical Questions, by General and Universal Rules.

To which is prefix'd, An Introduction contain ing a succinct History of this Science.

By Mr NATHANIEL HAMMOND , of the Bank.

Extract from the Account of this Book in the Works of the Learned.

' The World has long complained of the Want ' of a proper Introduction to Algebrz. Some are ' so very concise, as if they were contriv'd not to ' teach but introduce a Teacher; others again are ' larger, but wrote with so little Condescension to ' the Understandings of such as are altogether unacquainted ' with the Science, that they are of very ' little Use to those who are most inclined to make ' use of them. Whence it comes to pass, that few ' find it practicable to make any Progress in Algebra ' without a Master, tho' certainly-the Science ' in itself is far from surpassing a clear Head, and ' a tolerable Understanding.

' The Design of this Treatise, which is of a reasonable ' Bulk, and which contains nothing which ' is not solid, and to the Purpose, is to assist such ' as are engaged in teaching Algebra with a regular ' Method, and a large Stock of Examples; to that ' their Scholars may find Employment in their Absence; ' and to enable such as live in Country. ' Places, and must consequently want all other Tutors, ' except Books, to acquire such a Skill in ' this Science, as may enable them to spend a Portion ' of their Time agreeably in the Cultivation of ' their better Parts, and in rendering a natural Method ' of enquiring after Truth habitual.

' The Treatise begins with a copious Explication ' of the Fundamental Principles of the Art, and of ' the Signs and Method of Notation used therein ' The Author then proceeds to the several Rules, ' explaining them carefully and copiously in all their ' various Cases; so that with a moderate Attention ' it is simply impossible for a Person, who desires to ' be Master of Algebra, to miss of his End.

' We never find this Writer advancing any thing ' out of its proper Place, or burthening the Mind ' of his Scholar with Rules, before they become necessary: ' He prosesses o have imitated the judicious ' Euclid in this Rebect; and he has done it ' with equal Art and Flicity. By this means he ' has delivered the young Student in Algebra from ' that which is usually be most fatiguing Part of ' the Science, viz. The Doctrine of Surds, in the ' Manner in which it usually taught. By the ' same Means he leads h Reader directly to Equations; ' and, by shewin him the Profit he is to

' reap from the Science encourages him to overcome ' all it Difficulties. But ' strong and more ' slowly through the rest of the Work, that whoever ' follow him, may be obliged to become Master ' of every Branch of the Art, so as to be a compleat ' Algebra, before he quits his Book, and ' not a Smatterer

' Quadratic Equations, and the Art of managing ' Converging S, the adoptable Invention of ' the incomparable Sir Isaac Newton , are here to ' clearly explained, and their several Cases so plainly ' set down, and so thoroughly explicated, that ' it may be truly said, there are no where else such ' Instructions to be met with. At the of the ' Book, we find abundance of Observations, necessary ' for enlightening such Minds as are willing ' to proceed still farther in analytic Discoveries; ' so that considering the Compass of this Work, ' and that too is very moderate, it is as complete ' as possibly can be expected: And he who is ' thoroughly versed in it. will find no great Difficulties, ' when he proceeds to sublimer Studies. ' The Language is plain and natural. the Book is ' more copious than any other in Examples, and ' the Illustrations of them are so full and clear, ' that is impossible to mistake their Meaning. -
