The volume offers all the surviving Pronostici by Domenico Maria da Novara, professor of astronomy in Bologna and teacher of Copernico. Scattered throughout many libraries, they are his only remaining writings. Their transcription comes along with a description of Novara’s personality and an analysis of their astrological and astronomical contents. The purpose of this work is to add a contribution to the knowledge of astronomy in the age of Copernico.
