Summary expansion
The work became a required text at all the major universities and was still in general use up to the mid-17th century. It is divided into four books: the terrestrial globe, cities great and small, the rising and setting of the stars, and the orbits and movements of the planets. This edition includes Vinet's Scholia with references to Portuguese and Spanish discoveries in East and West Indies (Sabin, J. Dictionary of books relating to America from its discovery to the present time, no. 32681). Also included are commentaries by Petrus Nonnius and Pier Valerian
