The table of contents consists of three folios. There are nine columns to each half folio with twenty-two characters in the first column of each paragraph and twenty-one in the rest of the paragraph. The title is given in the middle of each folio with the number of the folio. Juan A and B have twenty-six folios each. The Dace is a book on trigonometry 大測者,測三角形法也 (see folio 2 of the table of contents).
