Note
  • Signature : A-B4
  • Woodcuts: Rossi's Mercury device on title page, within a scrolled cartouche; large white historiated initials; head-pieces
  • Rossi lacked figures small enough to set the fractions in type, and thus was forced to supply them in manuscript after the printed sheets were perfected. Though common in early books for Greek and for decorative initials, this laborious practice of completing printed sheets in manuscript was almost entirely abandoned as too costly by the 1520s. Cataldi's 1577 edition is a very late example of the practice
  • Text printed in italic and roman type
