Description

This work is: "divided into three sections: the first on arithmetic using the table abacus, the second to Coss (algebra) and the last to the church calendar. While a useful book to three different groups, its main attribute seems to be that it substituted German words for foreign words and phrases—mainly in the section on algebra" (Tomash & Williams).
