ab: 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.
