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.

Johannes Praetorius
Analemma Ptolemaei quomodo se in plano habeat

Notes on Ptolemy’s Analemma by Johannes Praetorius (1537-1616), instrument maker and professor of mathematics in Wittenberg (1571-1576) and Altdorf (1576-1616). The text is not attributed to Praetorius, but the only known MS is in his hand and looks like an author’s copy. Praetorius had probably access to Ptolemy’s text in Federico Commandino’s edition of 1562 (C.4.2).
