Excerpt from Napier: Tercentenary Memorial Volume

These communications naturally fall into two groups, according as they treat of the life and work of Napier himself, or deal with subsequent developments of the logarithmic idea which will ever be associated with the name of the Baron of Merchiston.

From the historic point of View the former group will be found particularly interesting. The various contri butions have been prepared absolutely independently, each author following out his own line of thought without any knowledge of the intentions of the other contributors. Inspired though these essays are by consideration of the life and work of the same great man, and based largely upon the same limited set of facts, they show a surprising diversity both in point of View and mode of treatment. They are a striking tribute to the fertility of the idea first promulgated by Napier. At the same time they focus attention anew upon the authoritative statements in the writings of Napier and his contemporaries, and dispose once and for all of certain misapprehensions which have found currency in mathematical literature.

The remaining communications deal with a great variety of topics, the one common feature being calculation.
