Casati was professor of mathematics at the Jesuit Collegio Romano and then at the university of Parma. This work, one of many that he wrote, is a consolidation of Galileo's work on the compass (see lots 197 onwards); it was reprinted three times before the end of the seventeenth century.

"...It not only contains good descriptions of usage, complete with many examples, but also discusses the manufacture of the device with two major foldout diagrams that could be used as patterns for the scales. Unlike many such works that state the method of usage but then give very simple problems involving triangles (for example), Casati provides the reader with realistic problems involving regular shapes" (Tomash & Williams, p.259).
