This is the Only edition of this little handbook on Latin metrics and versification intended for the use of students at the grammar-school (Gymnasium) of Frankfurt/Main, by Anton Itter , who was assistant headmaster at the school. Itter also issued similar handbooks on philosophy for his students (1659 and 1655).Being produced for a very limited readership, the booklet is understandably very rare: no copy can be located in any American collection. § VD17 3:609489B.
