Enlarged edition of this comprehensive work on Greek and Roman science, divided into two main parts, the first based on the Roman savant Varro, who deals with various aspects of human life, including procreation and pregnancy, and the influence that music and the zodiac had on these topics. Censorius then treats the different divisions of the calendar (time), astronomy, geometry, music, metrics and versification.
