Riccardi I, 511; not in BM-STC Italian. VERY RARE FIRST EDITION of Cataneo's curious mathematical-astrological treatise (a similar tract was published in 1562 under the title Rote perpetue). In this work, a board game based on calendar computations is described which consists of numerical charts related to the 12 months of the year. The game involves the casual extraction of two numbers by the use of three dices, to calculate Moon phases, specific dates such as Easter, the beginning of the Advent or the Golden number. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
