Catalogue Note

“Pitiscus was editing a table of natural sines to ten decimal places that had earlier been calculated by Georg Joachim Rheticus and his assistants. During the editing process he realized that to make the corrections, he really needed a table to more than ten digits and this realization led him to believe that Rheticus must have calculated them to more than ten places. He contacted Valentin Otho, the man who had edited the Rheticus papers after his death, and Otho confirmed that Rheticus did have a manuscript table to fifteen decimal places but that it had been misplaced when Otho had moved. Pitiscus searched for the missing manuscript, but he had to wait until after Otho’s death when it was discovered among his papers” (Tomash & Williams).
