FIRST EDITION, one of two issues printed in 1593 (the other one has the name Paul Helwig in the colophon). Rantzau was a nobleman from Schleswig-Holstein, first and foremost a politician, but he also demonstrated great interest in many different intellectual pursuits. He attracted the attention of Tycho Brahe and subsequently provided him with one of his castles, in Wansbeck, just outside Hamburg, where Tycho was able to continue his researches (Tycho had had to leave Hven following his falling-out with the Danish king).

This work attempts to reconcile the Julian and Gregorian calendars, together with tables for calculating movable feasts and a section on astrology, where Rantzau casts his own horoscope. There is also a listing of the fairs in various towns across Europe, in particular those in Germanic lands. It should be remembered that the Gregorian calendar, which was implemented in October 1582, did not reach Protestant states until much later (Denmark adopted the Gregorian calendar in 1700).
