Introduction

It seems certain that this collection of “mechanical” problems and their solutions is not the work of Aristotle, though it probably is the product of the Peripatetic School. The reader will find most of them interesting, particularly those dealing with the circle and the lever. Though the author is astray in some cases, it is most surprising to find how far the science of Applied Mathematics had advanced by this date.
