Note
  • Printer from colophon, which reads: "Venetijs apud haeredes Lucaeantonij Iuntae Florentini mense Ianuario, anno MDXLIII."
  • Maurolico's dedication to Cardinal Pietro Bembo on leaves a1v-a4v
  • Printed in roman type; printed marginal notes
  • Woodcuts: printer's device on t.p. (the Giunta lily with initials "L.A.", within an ornamental border featuring satyrs, grotesque heads, and leafy swags and branches); a larger variation of the device appears on verso of leaf 103; white-on-black historiated initials; illustrated throughout with astronomical and geometrical diagrams
  • Signatures: a4 b-d8 e-z4 A4
  • Some copies include an appendix of four leaves of astronomical tables (printed in gothic type, signed [maltese cross]4, and dated Dec. 5,1542). Camerini mis-identifies these four leaves as an index, and suggests that they were added to copies from a second impression which are dated MDXLIII rather than MDXXXXIII
