Extremely scarce first edition of this comprehensive mathematical work, which was important in the spreading of the understanding of mathematical concepts. Johnn Rudolph von Graffenried, an encestor of Niklaus von Graffenried, was born in 1584. His great passion was the understanding of mathematical concepts, and in 1618-19 he published his main work "Arithmeticae Logisticae", in which he deals with the mathematical theories and theorems of Cardanus, Christoph Rudolf, Glarean, Schoner, Stiffel, Ramus, etc. The first part of the work deals with calculating with cardinal and broken numbers, the second with proportion, progression, etc., the third with calculation of interest, society, demography etc., and the fourth with decimal fractions.The general state of mathematics and the teaching of mathematics in Switzerland in the early 17th century was in a bad state, and Graffenried came to play a dominant role in the spreading and teaching of arithmetic in Switzerland, mainly through the present work.
