abstract = {Robert Recorde’sThe Pathway to Knowledg, the second of his mathematical textbooks, was published in 1551, some eight years afterThe Ground of Artes. Its metaphorical title reinforces the trope of mathematical discovery as a journey, an adventure even: the student well grounded in arithmetic was now ready to set out in a new direction, towards mastery of geometry. ThePathwaywas the first textbook of geometry for English readers, and for that reason alone is historically fascinating. It can also be seen from a different perspective, however, as one of many texts in a long line of translations, editions},
