Catalogue Note

RARE. "The threefold lily of practical arithmetic" presents basic arithmetic operations such as addition and multiplication for whole numbers and fractions. Like the author's Enchiridion novus algorismi (Cologne 1501; reprinted 1504, 1507), it is divided into four treatises: integers, fractions, counters (abacus), and "Regula de Tri". Huswirt (Hauswirth) studied at the university of Cologne; in 1512, he was chaplain to Matthäus Schiner during the Pavia campaign in northern Italy, and in recompense obtained in 1515 the parish of St Mauritius in Saanen (Kanton Bern).
