Catalogue Note

Stromer von Auerbach was a physician and rector of the University of Leipzig. He was a correspondent of Erasmus, Pirckheimer and Reuchlin and later became personal physician to Albrecht of Brandenburg.

This is one of many editions of his introduction to arithmetic, based on the use of the table abacus, first printed in Leipzig in 1504; all editions are rare.
