Work B.17

Pseudo-Ptolemy
Liber figure

Text ‘(Vatican, BAV, Pal. lat. 1414) Cum omnibus directe intuentibus constet esse necessarium aliquid in astronomia arte prevalere, ut tanti operis sine magno labore fructum posse assequi quatinus insudendum sit recte cognoscetur. Est autem non minima pars tante artis cum ad plenum figura In omnibus vero domibus prout queque habet prosperitatis sive adversitatis et sicut planete se habent pie aut impie, itaque diudicentur. Si autem aliquis alicui deesse quod sibi minus videatur, in libro planetarum requiratur secundum hoc quod Anaxagoras ibi disposuit. Finitus est liber figure Ptholomei.’
