Books on history of mathematics, science and technology
Berlet, Bruno. Zur Feier des vierhundertsten Geburtsjahres von Adam Riese. 1892. [The copy provided by Interlibrary Loans is either lacking a title page or may have been a separately printed booklet. The author's name is only shown on the library binding and no other details are given. It consists of two main sections.
Adam Riese, sein Leben, seine Rechenbücher und seine Art zu rechen (reprinted from the Programm der Progymnasial und Realschulanstalt zu Annaberg 1855).
Die Coss von Adam Riese (reprinted from the same Programm for 1860).
The copy I saw might have been the Programm for 1892. My reference is [Johannes Lehmann; Rechnen und Raten; Volk und Wissen, Berlin (DDR), 1987, p. 13] where he gives Berlet's name, a slight variation of the title and says it was published in Leipzig and Frankfurt in 1892. PHOTOCOPY FILED under Ries in History Books.

Bhaskara I (= Bhāskara I) (c629).
Āryabhaţīya-Bhāşya. [NOTE: ţ denotes a t with a dot under it and ş denotes an s with a dot under it.] 629 (second of these three works). Critically edited, including an English Appendix of the numerical examples used, by Kripa Shankar Shukla. Indian National Science Academy, New Delhi, 1976, HB. (Vol. 2 of a three volume series devoted to the Āryabhaţīya (499) of Aryabhata (476- ), qv.) Bhaskara I repeats and exposits Aryabhata verse by verse, but Aryabhata rarely gives numerical examples, so Bhaskara I provided them and these were later used by other Indian writers such as Chaturveda, 860.

Thomas Kees for Joannis Parui & Joannis Lambert (in colophon; TP has Jehanlambert), Paris, (1513). Facsimile by Heffer, 1960. See Smith, Rara, pp. 95-97. Glaisher [Messenger of Mathematics 53 (1923-24) 1 131] discusses this book and says he only knows one example of it, which he has in front of him, so I suspect this facsimile is from that copy. The Honeyman Collection had a copy, saying it was printed for J. Petit and J. Lambert and that copy had Petit's device on the TP while the TP shown in Rara has Lambert's device, which is as in this facsimile. There was a reprinting in 1514 and extended editions in 1519 (ed. by Oronce Finé) and 1526 (ed. by T. Rhaetus) [Honeyman Collection, nos. 350-352; the Turner Collection had a 1526 as A4.31, listed under Martinus Silicaeus and saying he was a cardinal].
