Description

This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1892 edition. Excerpt: ...Here, likewise, the Septuagint is followed. The reading should consequently be riccxh. (1046 + 5199 = 6245). The original A-Tract contains no ascription of authorship. The design, contents and probable age will be cansidcred later on. The B-Text is likewise anonymous.

The moon's age on Nov. 25, 1056, was 13. The reading must, accordingly, be either iiii. Kal. Dec. (Dec. 28), xui. luna; or, uii. Kal. Dec, xiii. luna. Judging from the Four Masters (who say the "fourth Calend," but, as usual, omit the lunation), the former was the original. The error, which is of frequent occurrence, arose from mistaking ii. (2) for -. (5), or vice versa. The design and contents of the Tracts next demand attention.
