Catalogue Note

This (second?) edition of Reyher’s arithmetic textbook is unknown to the editors of the German national bibliography for the 17th century (VD17), as well as to Annette Gerlach, Magister Andreas Reyher (1601-1673): Handschriften und Drucke: Bestandverzeichnis (Gotha 1992), who records 1644 editions of the Arithmetica and Synopsis Grammaticae Graecae (cf. nos. 2, 16). The anonymous Tariffa uber den Silberkauff is likewise unrecorded by VD17; it could be related to a publication of 1681 associated with the engraver Johann Christoph Schmidt (VD17 23:711215L).
