Description

RARE. Tzwivel (also known as Dietrich Zwyvel) was also a printer in Münster from 1514, using Ulrich Zel's printing material.

These two tracts were first published in Cologne in 1505. The first contains "a brief explanation of the writing of numbers and the fundamental operations" (Smith, p.86).
