Description: (DALENCÉ, J.). Trattato curioso di matematica. Nel quale col mezzo di tre instrumenti cioe' del barometro, termometro ed igrometro. Trad. dal Francese. Venice, G.B. Recurti, 1753. 338, (6) pp. W. engr. front. & 12 fold. engr. plates depicting num. instruments. Bound in old vellum. (Possibly recased as the capitals are recent, first plate bound upside down, else a fine copy). This untraceable work can probably be ascribed to Dalencé, because the title on the frontispiece is an exact translation of the original French title: "Trattato de' barometri, termometri, e nociometri ovvero igrometri/Traitez des barometres, thermometres et notiometres ou hygrometres". Joachim Dalencé (±1640-1707), French astronomer & physician. He was acquainted with Oldenburg, Huygens & Leibniz. - DSB 3, 534: "His detailed description of the principal meteorological instruments of the period is enriched with several new ideas, such as the calibration of the thermometric scale on the basis of two points of change of state: the point at which water freezes and — a much more contestable point — that at which butter melts."
Estimated Price: € 240
