Opera d'abbaco del reverendo padre don Smiraldo Borghetti

Here are some pages from a book I bought some years ago on arithmetic, published in 1594.
It is interesting to read that without numbers the world would be without order,  and a horrible chaos.
Strangely the current popular view (which I do not share) is that the world is chaos, even to the extent that the laws of physics are the casual effect of which universe of the multiverse we happen to inhabit.
