Description

RARE FIRST EDITION, A LARGE COPY. This is the second treatise on commercial arithmetic to be printed in Italy, after Larte dela merchadantia, Treviso, 1478, which was never reprinted. Borgo's work was more detailed and therefore of greater influence; it was reissued in 1488, 1491 and many more times in the sixteenth century. Borgo was a mathematician from Venice.
