William Rouse wrote another book; “Investigation of the errors of all writers on Annuities, 1816.

Possibly, the greatest advance in Britain since Richard Witt’s Arithmeticall Questions (1613) came with the publication of William Rouse’s book in 1816. This was entitled:

“An investigation of the errors of all writers on annuities, in their valuation of half-yearly and quarterly payments, including those of Sir Isaac Newton, Demoivre, Dr. Price, Mr. Morgan, Dr. Hutton, &c. &c. With tables showing the correct values when payments are made in less periods than yearly, and a specimen of a set of tables on a new principle (now in the press) for the valuation of leases, estates, annuities, church livings or any income whatever.”

RE compound interest: Sir Isaac Newton’s Tables. Rouse (1816) infers that these tables were most unlikely to have been compiled by Newton due to a number of mathematical inconsistencies.


The insurance business and stock maket and banking is as gambling.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Just a day or so ago, The Doctrine of Chances was on eBay. It was missing its cover, but otherwise in okay shape for a book that's almost 200 years old.

A Rouse family motto:

'Those who have helped us to get money shall help us enjoy it'.

Those who I have helped to get money shall cough up my share or they shall not be seen again. Smile
