WILLIAM Rae Macdonald’s The construction of the wonderful canon of logarithms (William Blackwood & Sons, 1889) provides details for all five of Napier’s works, including their translations into Dutch, French, German and Italian, and the major bibliographical variations between them. Cargill Gilston Knott’s Napier tercentenary memorial volume (Longmans, Green & Co, 1915) also contains a long chapter by Prof. R. A. Sampson on the bibliography of Napier’s works.
