Barrow’s second set of Lucasian lectures were delivered in 1665, and this set along with the other sets were published in 1683 as Lectiones mathematicæ; see Feingold, ‘Isaac Barrow: Divine, Scholar, Mathematician’, pp. 68, 79. The extracts of the lecture reproduced here are from the English translation in Barrow, The Usefulness of Mathematical Learning, pp. 163–85.
