Example text

3, 4 and 7). 24 Introduction Fig. 6 f. 35. 40, 25 The Greate Invention of Algebra (ii) Radicals Torporley listed and summarized over seventy sheets on surds and binomes √ √ (numbers of the form a ± b);74 many, if not all of those sheets are still extant, and from Torporley’s version it should be possible to identify and collate them, but I have not so far attempted to do so. (ii) The Treatise on equations Here Torporley set out exactly the material described in the Corrector, and in the same order, that is, Sections (d), (e) and, ( f ) followed by (a), (b) and (c).

Torporley did not complete the remainder of his plan, and it would seem that at some stage Harriot’s Executors relieved him of his duties. We do not know why this happened, but Torporley later complained that ‘my enemies accuse me to the Master of Petworth as being, among other things, an ignorant logic-chopper’,49 and the Executors may have been simply concerned about his age and his intellectual ability to complete the task. For whatever reason, Harriot’s work on equations was eventually edited not by Torporley, as Harriot had intended, but by Walter Warner, possibly assisted by others: Torporley later remarked that one of the editors had been ‘lifted to heaven’,50 and this would have been Protheroe, who died in 1624, so perhaps the Executors divided Harriot’s papers even before that date.

Part I, Section 1, is virtually identical to Harriot’s Operations of arithmetic in letters. The remainder of Part I then covers Harriot’s Sections (d), (e) and ( f ), but in a way that diverges radically from the manuscripts. Warner rearranged Harriot’s material, and seems to have done so to make it fit to three of the definitions that appear in the opening pages of that book. It is not clear where these definitions came from: they may have been written by Harriot but are 20 Introduction not found in the surviving manuscripts, which leaves open the possibility that they were written by Warner himself.
