Describing Danfire's ingenious invention of an instrument used by surveyors to measure angles, which remianed popular with a few modifications well into the 19th-century. A fine metal-worker and engraver, and maker of mathematical instruments in metal and paper, Danfrie also invented the type used to print this book. Of the seven known types created by Danfrie, the ones used here are the second and fourth of his Gothic-cursive Civilite types, a font first created to mimic French script by Robert Granjon. Danfrie's early Civilite types were used in books printed by him and Richard Breton. Danfrie was appointed "graveur general des monnaies de France" in 1582.
