Description

“This is a book on predicting favorable and unfavorable days in the calendar. Its predictions are based on the theories of Galen and those of Petrus Albanus. It contains four volvelles: one (with one disk) to correlate critical days of the signs in the zodiac, one (two disks) to do the same with the phases of the moon, one (two disks) again involving the sun and moon and one (two disks) that is essentially the zodiac circle from the rete of an astrolabe, used for determining the position of the sun and hence the time of day. This last volvelle is unusual in that it shows both twelve-hour and twenty-four-hour notation for time” (Tomash & Williams).
