Description

A LARGE COPY with the lower margins untrimmed. "One of the more interesting of the early German arithmetics. It is mercantile in character, and presents in condensed form the essentials of business arithmetic. Among the peculiarities of the book is the use of 'figures' for 'species'" (Smith). 

"Böschenstein was a professor of Hebrew at Ingolstadt and Heidelberg and also taught for a time at Antwerp and Nürnberg... Böschenstein first starts with consideration of the seven basic operations (numeration, addition, subtraction, mediation, duplation, multiplication and division) and includes illustrations involving fractions as well as integers. He then continues with examples of the rule of three, etc." (Tomash & Williams).
