No, I haven't seen it. Do you have any information on where to get it?
>> Actually, in some European countries, most notably
>> Germany, that *is* how they designate time periods.
>> Thus, the 12th century refers to 1200-1299 rather
>> than 1100-1199.
> If I remember correctly, when German authors speak about "zwölftes
> Jahrhundert" (12th century), they mean the years before 1200, i.e. the
> beginning of 1100 until the end of 1199 or the beginning of 1200. 18th
> century is 1700-1800 (think of Goethe, Herder, ...). 16th century (think
> of Luther and Marx Rumpolt, to name only two big figures) is 1500-1600 and
> so forth.
> However, in Italian, we use expressions like "quattrocento" (literally
> 400, for 1400) for the 15th century.
> Now, speaking of the 12th century (1100-1200): has anybody seen 'De
> utensilibus ad domum regendam pertinentibus' of Adam du Petit Pont/ Adam
