Catalogue Note

“These astronomical tables were, along with Reinhold’s Prutenic Tables, the first to be based on the Copernican system. Stadius, in the dedication, indicates that he is following in the footsteps of Copernicus and Reinhold but that he considers the writings of Copernicus to be too sketchy while those of Reinhold required too much calculation” (Tomash & Williams).
