Abstract

[Commercial arithmetics in Spain date back to the fourteenth century, though they were first printed only in the following century (See the following recent studies: [Caunedo / Córdoba 2000], [Caunedo 2007], [Docampo Rey 2004], [Docampo Rey 2009].). Actually, the first printed book on mathematics in Spain was probably the second on the subject to appear in the entire Western world: Francesc Santcliment’s Summa de l’art d’Aritmètica, first published in Catalan (Barcelona, 1482), and later in Spanish (Zaragoza, ca. 1487) [Malet 1998].]
