A good copy of this rare dissertation from the Augustinian college at Rottenbuch in Bavaria, attempting to reduce logic (the science of reasoning) to one hundred numbered paragraphs. Describing the function and limits of logic, the authors, both Austin canons at Rottenbuch, explain the use of syllogisms, the relationship of logic to epistemology, the theory of universals, necessity and contingency, and more.

Outside Germany, OCLC records just one copy, at Cambridge.
