A bound volume that was used in the late 18th-century probably for instructors in a school to teach mathematical principles, with examples to illustrate the use of these principles and the answers to the questions, including one example with a drawing of a tower. From 1795-1807, Reverend J. Stopford reused the pages to mount receipts for household expenses, income and rent from properties in Louth; he used blank sheets to record expenditures for a variety of expenses and income, letters and accounts related to work in a school and staff to teach students, payments to other church officials, deacons and rectors, a copy of his letter of appointment to the school as well as receipts for the tuition and costs of boarding for his son.
