Description: CONCHOLOGY -- M(ARSILI), A.F. Relazione del ritrovamento dell’uova di chiocciole in una lettera al signor Marcello Malpighi. Rome, D.A. Ercole, 1695. 141 pp. W. 1 engr. plate. 12°. Old brds. (Half-ti. and ti-p. reinforced on the external blank margins, a little browned/foxed). Second and best edition (first publ. in 1683). Rare work on molluscs (snails) and their reproduction. This book is dedicated to Malpighi and takes a stand against the recently (1681) published book by Bonanni on molluscs, where this latter defended the theory of spontaneous generation of molluscs from decaying matter. - Vinciana, 1697; Junk (Rara), 179. Not in Nissen.
Estimated Price: € 240
