DOUKAS, Konstantinos. Praktike arithmetike. Periechousa ta tessara eide arithmetikes ente akeraiois kai klasmatikois arithmois meta kanonon kai exegeseon akolouthos ten aluson, kai heterous diaphorous tou emporiou logariasmous. Vienna, Greek Printing House of Johannes Sneirer, 1820.

Two volumes in one, 8vo. Contemporary marbled boards with printed label to spine; pp. [viii], 243; 328, [12]; rubbing and wear; internally, apart from light spotting, a very good copy; old manuscript calculation on front fly-leaf.
First edition. A very rare practical arithmetic for the emerging modern Greek society and state, aiming at tradespeople, businesses, manufacturers, and hopefully - an emerging middle class. Doukas was from Siatista in Macedonia, at the time semi-autonomous under Ali Pasha, hence a safe haven for Greek intellectuals and activists. The publication was financed by Sneirer's Greek Printing House and therefore the print-run must have been rather small.
