Short Title: Ephemerides, sive Almanach perpetuum (1498)
Title: Ephemerides siue Almanach perpetuu[m]
Imprint: Venice: [Petrus Liechtenstein, for Johannes Lucilius Santritter, 15 Oct. 1498]
Comments and Notes: ISTC assigned to Regiomontanus, Johannes. Wrongly attributed to Johannes Regiomontanus, being in fact by Abraham Zacutus, cf. E. Zinner, Leben und Wirken des Johannes Müller von Königsberg (1938) p.268, n.304 (CIBN). The tables begin with the year 1473. Cf. Lalande. "Tout l'ouvrage est compose de tables astronomiques"--Grässe. "Authorship uncertain"--Klebs; long ascribed to Regiomontanus, more recent authorities attribute most of the tables to Abraham Zacuto. Cf. Cantera Burgos, F. A. Zacut, p. 64; Zinner, p. 365. The tables were edited by J.L. Santritter. Imprint from Goff.
