Incunabulum Astron-14 at the Herzog August Bibliothek Wolfenbüttel (thumbnail page).
Try as I might, I couldn't readily track down anything about this astrology/astronomy manuscript. The author is unknown. Handwriting at the front mentions Guido Bonatus (13th century astrologer), Erasmus (theologian/philosopher died 1536) and Melanchthon (Protestant theologian died 1560) but it's just as likely this was written after the manuscript had been completed in latin set-type. So probably late 15th/early 16th century at a guess.
