Catalogue Note

The Nuovo lume is the only publication of the maestro d'abaco, Giovanni Sfortunati. Born in Siena probably in 1485, and instructed there in arithmetic by ​​Lattanzio and Pietro Moreschi, Sfortunati was called to teach in Ferrara by Alfonso d'Este. All five editions of his book (first 1534, last 1568) were printed in Venice.
