Joachim Sterck van Ringelberg (1499-1531) was a traveling scholar from Antwerp who lectured throughout Europe on almost every conceivable subject.
This compendium covers all of his encyclopedic interests, ranging from science, mathematics, and astronomy to Greek grammar and the occult arts (due to which the book was included in the Index of Forbidden Books).
The perspective illustrations inspired by the works of Viator and Rodler are particularly beautiful.
