Notes: An attempt by the Italian mathematician, sometime collaborator with Lalande, to mediate in the dispute between Delambre and Gauss on the calculation of the date of Easter. Gauss's first algorithm, published in 1800, contained an error, and he published a correction in 1816. Delambre took exception. The best account is Reinhold Bien 'Gauß and beyond: the making of Easter algorithms', Archive for History of Exact Sciences, 58(5), July 2004, 439–452. A scarce book (outside Italy).
