'My idea of an agreeable person,'said Hugo Bohun,'is a person who agrees with me.'

( Ptolemy ) left in his Optics , the earliest surviving table of angles of refraction from air to water. ...This table, quoted and requoted until modern times, has been admired... A closer glance at it, however, suggests that there was less experimentation involved in it than originally was thought, for the values of the angles of refraction form an arithmetic progression of second order...
