Tacquet, Andrew

a Jesuit of Antwerp, known for his skill in the mathematical sciences,' died in 1660. He published, among other things, a good treatise on astronomy, an edition of Euclid, etc. The prejudices of the times seem to have prevented him from more effectually defending the system of Copernicus. His collected works were published at Antwerp (1669, 1707, fol.).
