Apianus’s work marked a major advance in trigonometry: “In this volume Apian published a table of sines that, for the first time, was based on a circle with a radius of a power of ten, in this case one hundred thousand. The values of the functions were thus decimal and were easily adapted to any situation in which the defining circle was a decimal power” (Tomash & Williams).

The book also contains the earliest printing of Geber’s De Astronomia, a reworking of Ptolemy’s Almagest, but differing in the positioning of Venus and Mercury in relation to the sun, Geber contradicting Ptolemy by placing them above. Its most important influence was in the realm of spherical trigonometry.
