“The title page shows a ladder (scala) and wire hook (gramaldelli) used to pick locks. The verse underneath indicates that just as one needs a ladder to scale a wall and a skeleton key to pick a lock, one needs a book like this to acquire the basic tools of arithmetic. Later editions were often simply known as Scala Grimaldelli” (Tomash & Williams).
