An arithmetic intended for the advanced student with theoretical interests, written a few years before the author’s appointment as a royal lecturer in the Collège de France, "perhaps the most elaborate French treatise on arithmetic published in the sixteenth century" (Smith). A third volume of this work was published by Guillaume Cavellat in 1557. The son of a merchant, Forcadel wrote and lectured in French because he was not equipped to do otherwise.
