[Peri trigonometria]. [17--?]

Eighteenth-century trigonometry manuscript in Greek. The manuscript is divided into several sections, the last part containing information on the construction of astrolabes and another discussing the 5th book of Euclid's Elements. Geometrical illustrations appear throughout the text in addition to tables that seem to show relative measurements. The volume was previously owned by University of California, Berkeley anthropology professor John Howland Rowe, who was a classical linguist in addition to being a celebrated specialist in Peruvian archaeology.
