Hugh Semple's De mathematicis disciplinis (1635). Title page

Description

The dissemination of the mathematical science in seventeenth-century Spain, as well as the introduction of the Neperian logarithms, is owed to the Scottish Jesuit priest Hugh Semple, seminarian at the Scottish College of Madrid, which his uncle founded in 1627, and instructor at the Imperial College of San Isidro. His manual, De mathematicis disciplinis, sustained the teaching of mathematics in Spain until the 1700s.
