Unknown to Vinograd and Not Recorded by Any Other Bibliographer. Only one other copy extant, Schocken Library, Jerusalem. Alessandro Gardano printed precisely one other Hebrew book in his brief career, a Shulchan Aruch in 1578 (see Vinograd, Venice 632). Adams (F-146) records just a single publication by Gardano throughout the 16th century - Fallopius’ Secreti, 1578
