Ptolemaeus Arabus et Latinus

_ (the underscore) is the placeholder for exactly one character.
% (the percent sign) is the placeholder for no, one or more than one character.
%% (two percent signs) is the placeholder for no, one or more than one character, but not for blank space (so that a search ends at word boundaries).

At the beginning and at the end, these placeholders are superfluous.

Nürnberg, Johannes Petreius, 1534

‘Gebri filii Affla Hispalensis De astronomia libri IX, in quibus Ptolemaeum alioqui doctissimum emendavit, alicubi etiam industria superavit, omnibus astronomiae studiosis haud dubie utilissimi futuri, foeliciter incipiunt. Liber primus continens quaedam elementa geometrica ad astronomiam necessaria, nusquam alias obvia se dab ipso autore summa industria in lucem prodita. Prooemium. Scientia species habet quarum melior post scientiam sunt digniores ut evanescant et destruantur. Completa est eius declaratio. Finis novem librorum Gebri, arabice primo scripti et per magistrum Girardum Cremonensem in Latinum versi.’
