Mathematics Scheubel (Sceybl), Johann Comependium arithmeticae artis. Basel, J. Kuendig (Parcus) for J. Oporinus, 1560. 196 p., 6 sheets 8°. Pgt. using a manuscript sheet from the 14th century. (wavy, altered, with missing parts at the corners, stained). Very rare - VD16 S 2768 - Smith, Rara 246 - Sotheran 1764 - Second edition, first published in 1549 under this title, an edited version of Scheubel's De numeris of 1545 - Johann Scheubel (1494-1570) was professor of mathematics at the University of Tübingen and wrote a number of books on arithmetic, algebra and geometry, including a revised version of Euclid . Smith points out that Scheubel wrote his earlier books from the point of view of a scholar rather than a teacher of commercial arithmetic: the same is true of this work. In the first few pages Scheubel covers the basics of arithmetic, using both tabular tabacus and Hindu-Arabic notation, and then quickly moves on to more esoteric topics. He is considered the pioneer of algebra in Europe. - Partially with gnawing marks at the top margin, without loss of text. Some marginalia at present, heavily waterstained, somewhat stained. Resolutions with numerous notes in ink from several hands at present, among them two longer passages: "De inventione arithmeticae artis" and "De usus et dignitate arithmetica". From the estate of the Reutlingen pupil Michael Schaal with his ownership note (dated 1566) on the front cover. Schaal was enrolled in Tübingen in October 1564 (Hermelink I, 161. 134).
