Video Orientation to the University of Pennsylvania Library's LJS 420, a Liturgical calendar with some astronomical notes, such as indications of when the sun enters signs of the zodiac, and a circular diagram with 19 divisions around the circumference, corresponding to the 19 Julian years of the Metonic cycle (f. 1r). The calendar is followed by a few tables concerning the golden numbers and the dates of Septuagesima and Easter (f. 7r-7v), a hand-shaped diagram and table concerning the moon and the signs of the zodiac (f. 8r), and a list of combinations of planets (f. 8v).

Possibly written in Italy, ca. 1480 (dates in table, f. 7v).
