Third edition of the 'canonical' Alfonsine Tables, astronomical tables compiled in Toledo by a team of scholars commissioned by Alfonso X, 'el Sabio', to update the eleventh-century Toledan Tables. The Latin version was made from a Spanish version, now lost, and was first printed in 1483, by Erhard Ratdolt in Venice (Goff A534). These tables were the most commonly used in Europe from c.1320 until gradually replaced by Erasmus Reinhold's Prutenic Tables, first printed in 1551, and influenced the astronomy of the Renaissance.
