568 pages; Contemporary pattern-printed paper-covered boards, portions of a paper spine label titled in ink MS survive, edges stained red. Engraved frontispiece, title page in red and black. Collation: [-]8 A-Z8 Aa-Mm8 Nn4. Frontispiece, 7 p.l., 568 pp. Second edition, [Andere Auflage] of one of the three great mathematical texts by Christian Pescheck (1676 in Hradec Kralove - 1744 in Zittau ) -- a mathematics teacher, astronomer and writer. He was one of the greatest human calculators of his time, and an influential teacher of mathematical sciences at the high school in Zittau from 1704 until his death. He also wrote about astronomy, geology and the art of poetry and published works in German, Latin and Czech. He is mainly remembered for his three extensive texts in mathematical calculations and reckoning, of which this is the second edition of the first of the three. The useful German wikipedia entry makes note of the excessively long titles of his works, in the manner of their time. For the record, the full title of the present work is: M. Christian Peschecks, Gymnas. Zitt. & Praecept. Mathes. Allen dreyen Haupt-Ständen Nöthige Rechen-Stunden : Darinnen Sowohl die gedoppelte Regel Detri, nemlich Regula quinque directa und indirecta vel conversa, als auch Zinß- oder Interesse- Rabatt- Zeit- oder Termin- Licitation oder Subhastation- Thara- Fusti- Gewinn- und Verlust- Stich- oder Baratt- Gesellschaft- Erbtheil- Factorey- Caßir- Reduction- Gemeine- und Haupt- Wechsel- Alligation- Cöci- und Falsi-Rechnung, auf das deutlichste und einfältigste erkläret sind ; Wobey zugleich Ein deutlicher Unterricht von Pari und dem Cours derer vornehmsten Wechsel-Plätze, ingleichen eine aus- und inländische, als auch biblische curiöse Müntz- Maaß- und Gewicht-Vergleichung beygefüget. [The other two major works were: "Allgemeine deutsche rechenstunden, oder 1. theil" and "Italienische rechenstuden, oder 2. theil"]. David Smith [in Rara Arithmetica, 502] states the following: "In the field of elementary education, Germany produced a number of important writers, but few whose names can be rated as international. Among the most industrious of the group was Christian Pescheck, who wrote a large number of textbooks and was one of the first of the German writers to consider seriously the methods of teaching the subject." Although much of his city, Zittau (on the eastern edge of Germany, where Poland and the Czech Republic come together), was destroyed in the Seven Years' War, Pescheck's Gymnasium survives today. A decent, and complete copy, with the interesting engraved frontispiece (which depicts a small globe, with the continents identified, including America). Various signatures and writing on the blank recto of the frontispiece, including a date of MDCCLVI. With an inscription in Latin on the front paste-down: "pro memoria gratia / Carl Ludwig Christian / Weber a Schlitz." Beneath this is an impression from a signet ring in red wax. Scribbing and a few ink notes on a few early leaves (along with a faint ink smudge). None affects the legibility of the text, which is complete. OCLC has two accession numbers for this 1730 edition; each with just a single copy located: [OCLC: 312316835 - UNIVERSITAT LEIPZIG, UNIVERSITATSBIBLIO; and OCLC: 179969327 - HOCHSCHUL- UND LANDESBIBLIOTHEK FULDA].
