Alylin Malcolm offers a video orientation to the University of Pennsylvania Library's LJS 445 - Prenosticatio, by Johannes Lichtenberger. Written in Nuremberg, Germany, after 1488, in Middle High German.

This is a German anthology of astrological and astronomical works, including material copied from three incunables: Johannes Lichtenberger's Prognosticatio (Heidelberg, 1488), astrological predictions about the fate of the Church, the Holy Roman Empire, and the laity; and two editions of the calendar of Regiomontanus (Nuremberg, 1474; Venice, 1478).
