Publication statement based on Sabin.
There are two issues of this edition differing only in the size of the triangle on the 7th page and the spelling of one of the accompanying words. In the earlier issue, the triangle measures 17 x 29 mm. and the word hipotenussa lacks the initial h. In the second issue, the triangle measures 42 x 42 mm. and the word hipotenussa is spelled correctly.
