Full Title: The Philosophers' Game: Rithmomachia in Medieval and Renaissance Europe

A book on the game of Rithmomachia: a chess-like game based on arithmetic and mathematics from the Middle Ages. The book is written by Ann E. Moyer from the Department of History, University of Pennsylvania, USA. The book discusses the game's role in medieval and Renaissance learning (including its close ties to chess), and features a complete edition of an Elizabethan game manual (in English), so that readers can construct a game set and play it.
