A fine compilation of astrological texts, this is the first Pruckner edition of Firmicus Maternus' Matheseos, together with the Quadripartitum (Tetrabiblos) of Ptolemy – both major astrological handbooks – and other texts 'from the Arabians and Chaldeans'. 1. Julius Firmicus Maternus, Matheseos 2. Claudius Ptolemy, Quadripartitum 3. Hermes Trismegistus, Centiloquium (attributed to the mythical Egyptian philosopher/magician) 4. Bethen, Centiloquium (Plato of Tivoli's translation of an anonymous Arabic manuscript) 5. Almansor, Propositiones (extracted from Rhazes' Liber ad Almansorem) 6. Bethen, De horis planetarum 7. Zahel, De electionibus (ninth-century Jewish writer in Arabic) 8. Messahallah (Māshā’allāh), De coniunctionibus planetarum 9. Omar Tiberiadis, De nativitatibus 10. Marcus Manilius, Astronomica (Roman astrological poem, first century AD) The work is prefaced by the great botanist Otto Brunfels's glossary of astrological terms, its first appearance in print. Nicolaus Pruckner (Bruckner or Prugner), who wrote the address to the reader in Brunfels's famous Herbarum vivae eicones (1530), was a native of Franconia. He was an Augustine friar until he was converted to Protestantism in 1524, but his anabaptist beliefs led to a wandering career. Ultimately he filled the chair of astronomy at Tübingen. He published a number of astronomical works.
