First and only edition of this extremely rare arithmetical work.

"This is a curious work based on a geometric series. Beginning with the number 1, Paris doubles it 124 times to produce a large table of the powers of 2. He then sums these powers to obtain a number of 38 digits. The body of the text is a curious commentary on these numbers" (Tomash & Williams).
