His pupil, Johannes Buingha, was responsible for publishing further editions of it, until this one, which is the first to include Buingha's own work. "As is stated on the title-page, Waninghen's book contains a set of account books (memorial, journal and ledger) in which are entered 100 transactions, and also 530 'questions and answers, adorned with clear explanations'. The 530 questions and answers are divided into 23 chapters according to the type of transaction or occurrence. The consecutively numbered entries in the journal – some simple and some compound – are also clearly identified by a short title . The success of the chosen combination of catechism followed by illustration is attested by the numerous issues of the work, including two editions of a French translation."
