Catalogue Note

This is an appendix to Cavalieri’s Nuova prattica astrologica which was published in 1639 (see lot 112). It contains two sets of logarithmic tables (one trigonometric and one of the natural numbers), with an introduction to their use, together with tables for use in casting horoscopes. Riccardi, who had not seen the Appendice, dates it, presumably in error, to 1639.
