;V S- 1 ZEE-VAERT. Table 2. “Small” Vlacq tables published between 1651 and 1667. 13 It is remarkable that between 1651 and 1667 some of the "small" Vlacq tables were printed by other printers, although Vlacq did have his own printing shop during this period, see table 2 of those copies that still exist in libraries.

Both these books he had printed by his old printer, Pieter Rammaseyn in Gouda. His second book, Practyck van de groote zeevaert, lacked any reference to the "Great Table" in either his own j Nieuwe Teikonst, Part II, or in Vlacq's Arithmetica Logarithmica, Part II; De s Decker probably avoided the sensitive issue by using the older "small" tables from his Nieuwe Teikonst, Part I. Around I 1640 De Decker moved to The Hague where he took on the profession of wine gauger, until his death in 1647. bdrp’ 'V '<V' J i J Jn - '■■•s' PRACTYCK Vande Groote befchreven door Ezcchicl<& Decker,Mfn-mf. axle Zoit-meeer, refiderende 1 Jy.'yT'i t»t Rotterdam.
