The book deals with a Tractatus algorismi written in 1307 in Montpellier by a certain Jacopo da Firenze. This work is one of the earliest surviving 'abbacus' treatises, that is, textbooks for the vernacular school for merchant youth which sprung up in Northern Italy in the later 13th century, and by far more orderly than any of the extant predecessors. It is also the first to contain a presentation of algebra. The book contains an edition and an English translation of a manuscript from c. 1450 which is a meticulous copy of a meticulous copy; a critical edition of an abridged version of which two manuscripts exist, and an extensive discussion of the contents of the treatise and its location within early abbacus culture including evidence that this culture was transnational and probably older in the Catalan-Provencal area than in Italy."
