Annotated parallel text in Latin and English of the classic paper of Adam Adamandy Kocha\'nski "Observationes Cyclometricae", published in Acta Eruditorum 4:394--398 (1685), in which he presented approximate geometric method of rectification of the circle, as well as a series of rational approximations of \pi. The included Latin text of Observationes closely follows the original text published in Acta Eruditorum. Punctuation, capitalization, and mathematical notation have been preserved… 

Adam Adamandy Kocha\'nski's approximations of \pi: reconstruction of the algorithm

In his 1685 paper "Observationes cyclometricae" published in Acta Eruditorum, Adam Adamandy Kocha\'nski presented an approximate ruler-and-compass construction for rectification of the circle. It is

Rectification of a Circle Using Modified Kochański's and Pupovac’s Method

The problem of the exact rectification of a circle cannot be solved by classical geometry. Many approximate methods have been developed. Such an elegant one is Kochanski's construction. Another one
