A manual for the board game of battling numbers known as rithmomachia, ludus philosophorum, or philosopher's game. The author, a mathematician and teacher at the Collège Royal in Paris, suggests that Pythagoras and his followers may have been its inventors. The work had been first printed in French in 1554 (and "nouvellement amplifié" in 1556). On the title-page, the bookseller Cavellat directs the reader to a vendor of boards and playing-pieces (“Abacus & calculi vaeneunt in Palatio, apud Ioannem Gentil”).

Boissière's version was first published in French in 1554 (USTC 81035). For Barozzi's Italian version from 1572, see lot 42.
