    William Ellis His Book of Arithmetick
    The Six and Twentieth Day of January Annoq Dom MDCCXXIX

    Georgian arithmetic books were more than a record of work. Among the pages of calculations are ornate illustrations which show the student’s artistic skill and penmanship. This book is the work of a pupil called William Ellis.

    They don’t teach maths like this any more. See more pages at the source. (Found via Kita Inoru.)
