Theorema Cyclometricum, not later than 16 April 1708

 Item
Identifier: Coll-33/Quarto A [52]

Scope and Contents

Notes on cone sections, probably all connected to Gregory's joint project with Sir Edmund Halley to publish Apollonius and Serenus, two ancient geometers, following the success of the great Euclid project. Gregory was busy with his work overseeing the Scottish Mint, and he notes peevishly that the Dean of Christ Church is to "put upon" him particular resources in Apollonius.
