Algorithmus linealis numeratione[m] additionem subtractione[m], duplatione[m], mediatione[m], m[u]ltiplicationem, diuisione[m] et progressionem

By Heinrich Auerbach. [Leipzig]: Impressum Liptzk p[er] ... Martinu[m] Lanssburgk Herbipolensem ..., 1512.

One of the earliest treatises on calculation by the aid of counters on an abacus. In the dedication Heinrich Stromer von Auerbach (1482-1542) refers to Aristotle and Boethius.
