These treatises describe surveying instruments, gunnery, an adjustable proportional compass and pedometer. The parts are numbered in ink 2-5 at the heads of titles, indicating that another tract has been removed from the binding.

The first owner, Johann Friedrich Faust von Aschaffenburg (d. 1619), is infamous for his participation in the controversy over who invented printing, Gutenberg or Johann Fust of Mainz (the latter was claimed as a relation by Faust von Aschaffenberg).
