Catalogue Note

This treatise on slavery also serves as a compendium of everyday Roman objects, of interest to the present collection for the description and illustration of the Roman abacus. The Ad insigne Pinus press was founded by a group of scholars at the St Anna Gymnasium, Augsburg, and was active between 1594 and 1619.
