My book consists of one volume that brings together two books. The whole volume deals with the theme of science.
The main book, which is also the first part of the volume, is called «Mathesis Compendiaria, sive tyrocinia mathematica tabulis ». The content of this part is a condensed gathering and mixing of all kinds of scientific knowledge, which is divided into thirteen sections. Each of these sections illustrates and deals with a scientific subject such as algebra, arithmetic or military architecture from a scientific perspective. This part consists of 79 pages and 36 Illustrations, three of which are hand drawn and 33 of which are printed.
The second book of the volume is called « Scientia cosmica, sive astronomia tam theorica quam sphaerica », this part also deals with a scientific subject, but more specifically with astronomy. This subject is condensed into 32 pages and emphasized by one printed illustration.
The whole volume is written by the same author, Joann Christoph Sturm. Its length is 35 centimeters, its breadth is 24 centimeters and its width is of 25 millimeters.
Compared to the standard dimensions we can see that the book has the height of a Sexagesimo-quarto but the approximate size is that of a Folio.
