- The vvorks of Edmund Gunter : conteining the description and use of the sector, cross-staff and other instruments : with a canon of artificiall signes and tangents to a radius of 10000.0000 parts, and the use thereof in astronomie, navigation, dialling &c.
- Dialling : : plain, concave, convex, projective, reflective, refractive : shewing how to make all such dials and to adorn them with all useful furniture relating to the course of the sun : performed arithmetically, geometrically, instrumentally and mechanically : and illustrated with sculptures engraven in copper : comprised in XIV distinct tractates, the contents whereof follow next after the preface to the reader
- Handbook of the Napier tercentenary celebration, or, Modern instruments and methods of calculation
- Katalog mathematischer und mathematisch-physikalischer Modelle, Apparate und Instrumente : nebst Nachtrag
- Le calcul simplifié : graphical and mechanical methods for simplifying calculation
- Mechanick dyalling : teaching any man, though of an ordinary capacity and unlearned in the mathematicks, to draw a true sun-dyal on any given plane, however scituated : only with the help of a straight ruler and a pair of compasses, and without any arithmetical calculation
- Panorganon, or, A universal instrument performing all such conclusions geometrical and astronomical as are usually wrought by the globes, spheres, sectors, quadrants, planispheres, or other the like instruments yet in being, with ease and exactness : some uses whereof are exemplified in the solution of such problems as are of frequent use in the practise of geometry, geography, astronomy, trigonometry, dialling, projection, &c.
- The art of numbring by speaking rods, vulgarly termed Nepeirs bones : by which the most difficult parts of arithmetick, as multiplication, division, and extracting roots both square and cube, are performed with incredible celerity and exactness (without any charge to the memory) by addition and subtraction only
- The art of numbring by speaking-rods, vulgarly termed Nepeirs bones : by which the most difficult parts of arithmetick, as multiplication, division, and extracting of roots both square and cube, are performed with incredible celerity and exactness (without any charge to the memory) by addition and subtraction only
- The description and use of a joynt-rule : fitted with lines for the finding the hour of the day and azimuth of the sun, to any particular latitude, or, to apply the same generally to any latitude : together with all the uses of Gunters quadrant applyed thereunto ...
- The description and use of the carpenters-rule : together with the use of the line of numbers commonly called Gunters-line : applyed to the measuring of all superficies and solids, as board, glass, plaistering, wainscoat, tyling, paving, flooring, &c., timber, stone, square on round, gauging of vessels, &c. : also military orders, simple and compound interest, and tables of reduction, with the way of working by arithmatick in most of them : together with the use of the glasiers and Mr. White's sliding-rules, rendred plain and easie for ordinary capacities
- The triangular quadrant, or, The quadrant on a sector : being a general instrument for land or sea observations : performing all the uses of the ordinary sea instruments, as Davis quadrant, forestaff, crosstaff, bow, with more ease, profitableness, and conveniency, and as much exactness as any or all of them : moreover, it may be made a particular and a general quadrant for all latitudes, and have the sector lines also : to which is added a rectifying table to find the suns true declination to a minute or two, any day or hour of the 4 years : whereby to find the latitude of a place by meridian, or any two other altitudes of the sun or stars
