Condition Report

Very well known text of mercantile arithmetic, practical geometry and elementary algebra, first appeared in Venice in 1526, preceded in 1517 by the Libro de Abaco, and reprinted several times with some additions until the end of the seventeenth century, recognizing the practicality also thanks to figures and calculation models placed in the margin of the text. . Smith, Rara Arithmetica, p. 148: "More modern than Borghi, more practical than Paciolo, few books had greater influence on the subsequent teaching of elementary mathematics". Riccardi, II/coll. 20-21 [non cita la presente edizione]. Cerboni, Bibl. Computisteria e Ragioneria, pp. 21-22.
