Catalogue Note

Jordanus's work on the theory of numbers, first appearing in 1496, is in ten books. Both editions also include: Lefèvre's own treatise on music; his epitome of Boethius's arithmetic; and an anonymous tract about the arithmetical game of Rithmimachia, attributed variously to Lefèvre d’Étaples and John Shirwood, Bishop of Durham (d.1494).
