202 Book Reviews / Early Science and Medicine 13 (2008) 192-216 Ana Domínguez Rodríguez, Pilar Treviño Gajardo and José Martínez Gásquez, Al- fonso X el Sabio: Tablas de las constelaciones (Valencia, Spain: Patrimonio Ediciones), pp. 692, colour ills., no price, ISBN-10: 84 95061 22 8. Cataloguing this ﬁnely illustrated volume, which reproduces a star catalogue that is ostensibly associated with Alfonso X of León and Castile, would be an excellent exer- cise for an advanced degree in librarianship, although only after the candidate had passed a qualifying examination in weightlifting. (My copy, printed on loaded paper rather than parchment, tips the scales at 4.5 kg.) Very many individuals have played a part in its production, and here I shall speak chieﬂy of the three named authors. e publisher will be well known to all who have visited the book fairs at international conferences of medievalists—at Kalamazoo, for example—where his magniﬁcent manuscript facsimiles, the best of them printed on parchment, are coveted by all who see them. Patrimonio Ediciones have an eye to many diﬀerent types of purchaser, with the owner of a Renaissance Library at one extreme and the possessor of a framed individual page at the other.
