Deschauer (see below) describes this copy and cites another in the university library of Wrocław (Mathem. II. Oct. 63), on the authority of Martin von Hase, who had cited it in his article “Die in Erfurt Mathes Maler und Melchior Sachle gedruckten Ausgaben der Rechenbücher von Adam Riese”, Gutenberg-Jahrbuch 1937, p.121, and again in his Bibliographie der Erfurter Drucke von 1501-1550 (Nieuwkoop 1968), no. 424. It is not certain that the Wrocłow copy survived the Second World War. Von Hase wrongly cited a copy in the stock of Gilhofer & Ranschburg (Catalogue 190, item 124; Catalogue 193, item 1053); that volume, bound in red morocco with gilt dentelles, lacking the terminal blank leaf, is a copy of the 1523 second edition (ex-Hodgson’s, 27 June 1924, lot 406).
