‘Claudii Ptolemaei Pelusiensis libri quatuor de astrorum iudiciis cum expositione Hieronymi Cardani. Prooemium expositoris. Libros hos antiquorum more de iudiciis inscripsit Ptolemaeus Pelusiensis Aegyptius, unde Alexandrinus etiam dictus est… (94) Liber primus. Prooemium authoris. Caput I. Textus I. Duo sunt, Syre, quibus pervenitur ad astronomicas praedictiones, praecipua quidem et maxima… Commentarius. Authores prooemia faciunt, ut quod non ex arte est ad artem tamen est necessarium explicetur — et nova directio per meridianos iuxta proportionis aut circulos positionis reditus an processus significatorum electio. Et loci mutati aut mutati ingressibus comparati.’
