Catalogue Note

"Schöner was a teacher at the school in Nürnberg run by Phillipp Melanchthon. Like Regiomontanus, he set up a press in his own home and from there published works of mathematical and astronomical interest. These tables, edited by Schöner, were based on those computed initially by Regiomontanus. Besides the tables, this work contains a selection of other material originally written by Regiomontanus" (Tomash & Williams). He was also involved in the publication of Copernicus' De revolutionibus.
