Peter Barlow died in Kent, England. His New Mathematical Tables (1814), later known as Barlow’s Tables, gave the factors, squares, cubes, square roots, reciprocals, and natural logarithms of all numbers from 1 to 10,000. It was so accurate that it was reprinted numerous times, the last printing in 1947.
