John Newbery's 'Circle of the Sciences' series was announced in 1745. The individual books which comprised the series, dealing with spelling, grammar, writing, rhetoric, poetry, logic, geography and chronology, were issued over the next three years. Volumes on criticism, history and philosophy were advertised, but no editions now exist. Arithmetic made familiar and easy was first published in 1746, though under the title The Art of Arithmetic. See Roscoe 1973: 73-74 for more details.
