The Vera Circuli et Hyperbolae Quadratura in sua propria proportionis specie inventa (Gregory 1667, hereinafter VCHQ) was James Gregory’s debut work in the domain of quadrature problems. It was published in Padua in 1667 and reprinted a few months later, in the spring of 1668, as an appendix to another treatise, the Geometriae Pars Universalis (Gregory 1668, hereinafter GPU).
