The page-contents of this ed. correspond closely to those of the 1482 ed. only in the portions containing the cuts. A diagram has been added at the beginning, and the two concluding carmina ad lectorem of Sentinus omitted at the end; the cut of Scorpius has been replaced by a reversed copy (ep4sa); otherwise the cuts are the same as in the 1482 ed. The inscriptions "Piscis" and "Sol" in type 91 G. appear to be printed from the identical types used in 1482. -- BM 15th cent.
