"Most mathematicians' knowledge of Euclid's lost work on Porisms comes from a very brief and general description by Pappus of Alexandria. While Fermat and others made earlier attempts to explain the Porisms, it is Robert Simson who is generally recognised as the first person to achieve a genuine insight into the true nature of the subject. While his early successes were published in 1723, he continued to study the Porisms until his death but published nothing more on the topic during his lifetime. Instead, it was left to his executor to assemble the various manuscripts into the posthumous Tractatus de Porismatibus."
