First edition, a trader's pocket manual allowing the owner to quickly calculate a range of different quantities and prices of commodities. As often for such works copies were used and discarded and did not survive; ESTC locates only three institutional copies, in Birmingham Central Libraries, the Bodleian, and Yale.
