  • The tables of Bianchini (d. after 1469) are the largest set produced in the West before modern times, and historians of astronomy Chabas (U. Pompeu Fabra, Barcelona) and Goldstein (emeritus U. of Pittsburgh) have long wanted to discover the key that he used to construct them. Now they have, and contend that though the tables are not innovative in their building blocks, they reflect a well defined approach to astronomy, a practical way of presenting it, and a solid computing ability. Their first chapter outlines Bianchini's life and work, and the second analyzes his tables in the 1492 and 1526 printed editions and in two manuscripts.
