Extractions: Richard Delamain was a joiner by trade. He studied mathematics at Gresham College London. After this he remained in London becoming a private tutor of mathematics. Delamain became mathematics tutor to Charles I, who was king of Great Britain and Ireland (1625-49). Delamain was the same age as the king he tutored, both being born in 1600. He received 40 per year in this position. Delamain became a student of Oughtred and they were great friends at first. Oughtred wrote As I did to Delamain, and to some others ... I freely gave ... my helpe and instruction. ... But Delamain was already corrupted with doring upon instruments, and quite lost from ever being made an artist. They had a bitter dispute over the invention of a circular slide rule. Oughtred described the slide rule in 1622 but the circular slide rule was not described by him until 1632. Delamain described a circular slide rule in a 32 page pamphlet Grammelogia which was sent to the King in 1629 and published the following year. His fame as a mathematician rests on this work.

Religion Affiliation: Anglican assumed 6. Scientific Disciplines Primary: Mathematics Delamain is known almost entirely for his essay, Grammelogia, or the Mathematical Ring, which deals with practical mathematics and a couple of instruments, and for the controversy the work generated with Oughtred. He also published The Making, Description, and Use of . . . a Horizontal Quadrant, 1631, which was part of the controversy. As far as Oughtred was concerned, Delamain was a simple plagiarist who stole instruments that Oughtred designed but did not seriously understand them. On the whole modern commentators appear to doubt Delamain's originality. There is enough uncertainty for me to leave him in the catalogue. 7. Means of Support

Scientific Disciplines Primary: Mathematics, Navigation, Instrumentation Subordinate: Magnetism Gunter is known as a competent but unoriginal mathematician, whose work was largely of a practical nature. He contributed devices that aided calculations, and indeed instruments of all sorts, and he contributed importantly to mathematically controlled navigation. Thus, New Projection of the Sphere, 1623, and Canon triangularum, 1620, the logarithms of the trigonometric functions primarily for use in navigation. This also came out in English immediately. His Description and Use of the Sector, Cross-staffe, and Other Instruments, 1623, described, among other things, a precursor of the slide rule.

The Invention Of The Slide Rule Tell me more. richard delamain (16001644). richard delamain, ateacher of mathematics, was originally William Oughtred's student. http://www.mat.bham.ac.uk/C.J.Sangwin/Sliderules/inventrule.html
Extractions: Edmund Gunter's most important book entitled Description and use of the Sector , was first published in English in 1623. This has been described as ``the most important work on the science of navigation to be published in the seventeenth century." A sector is a mathematical instrument consisting of two hinged arms on which there are engraved scales which can be used to help with calculations. This is not a slide-rule; the single scale is used in conjunction with a pair of compasses. What makes Gunter's sector special is that it is the first mathematical instrument to be inscribed with a logarithmic scale to help solve numerical problems. In practice the points of the compass tend to damage the scales which reduces the accuracy of the instrument. William Oughtred was a clergyman and keen mathematician. He is believed to have introduced the x symbol for multiplication in his book Clavis Mathematicae (Key to Mathematics), written about 1628 and published in London in 1631. This was a very important maths text book at the time. Newton read and was influenced by it for example. He is now generally though to be the inventer of the slide rule. Both straight and circular rules are described in a book with the title
