Summary: Around the mid-1800s, the famous Don Giovanni Bosco, saint of the Catholic Church canonized by Pope Pius XI in 1934, wrote a book about mathematics and the units of measure for young workers and peasants. The edition referred to is the second, that of 1849. Few people know of this book. Given the illustrious name of the author, we have therefore decided to present it to teachers, after having studied its characteristics.
