        Scritti sopra le Valli di Ostellato

      Documento di mm 296x208 composto da 3 fogli, di cui uno singolo e due doppi, più un foglio volante (mm 293x200) su carta differente vergato in grafia diversa (in totale 6 carte). Il primo foglio e' bianco salvo per il titolo e la data sul recto. Il testo è vergato su una colonna sola (con molte cancellature e correzioni riportate sulla colonna opposta) e reca la data 5 febbraio 1745. Con richiami in calce (testo completo). Il foglio volante aggiunto è anch'esso scritto su una colonna sola e reca la data Ferrara, 7 aprile 1751. Minimi danni ai margini, qualche macchia, lievi arrossamenti marginali. Entrambe i testi riportano un parere tecnico circa dei lavori da eseguirsi sugli argini, sui ripari e sui "lavorieri" di canna della valle di Ostellato, in una diatriba con i Comacchiesi riguardante la pesca e lo spostamento del pesce. Il parere più esteso, redatto su richiesta del Commissario della R.C. Avv. Baldeschi, si richiama all'autorità di Luca Danesi, autore di Un discorso dela Cavo Contarino nel Ferrarese alla Punta d'Ariano, pubblicato insieme nelle Opere (Ferrara, 1670). Pur non essendo firmato, la nota sul titolo ricorda che questi scritti si trovavano fra le carte di Romualdo Bertaglia ed è quindi ipotizzabile che siano ascrivibili a quest'ultimo e che siano state scritte di suo pugno. Romualdo Bertaglia fu uno dei massimi ingegneri idraulici ferraresi del Settecento ed ebbe il titolo di matematico ed idrostatico della città. Insieme a Gian Andrea Barotti, letterato e uomo politico al centro del riformismo settecentesco a Ferrara, svolse un ruolo chiave nel progetto di immissione del Reno nel Po di Primaro attraverso la costruzione del cosiddetto cavo Benedettino..

Bel exemplaire. Après avoir achevé des études en droit à Bourges, Jean Domat remplit les fonctions d'avocat du roi au siège présidial de Clermont en Auvergne, sa ville natale, pendant près de trente années. Pendant ce temps-là, il se lia d'amitié à Blaise Pascal, dont il reçut même à Paris les derniers soupirs le 19 août 1662. Commencée déjà à Clermont au milieu de ses occupations professionelles, Domat poursuivit à Paris la rédaction de son ouvrage ?Les Loix Civiles dans leur ordre naturel? qui reste son titre devant la postérité. ?Personne . n'a mieux approfondi que cet auteur le véritable principe des lois et ne l'a expliqué d'une manière plus digne d'un philosophe, d'un jurisconsulte et d'un chrétien. Après avoir remonté jusqu'au premier principe et descendu jusqu'aux dernières conséquences, il les développe dans un ordre presque géométrique. Toutes les différentes espèces de lois y sont déterminées avec les caractères qui les distinguent. C'est le plan général de la société civile le mieux ordonné qui ait jamais paru? (Instruction de D'Aguesseau à son fils, cité d'après Rosenwald, col. 478).Victor Cousin qui en 1843 publiait une étude sur Domat (cf. Journal des Savants), porte un jugement fort suggestif à l'égard de notre auteur: ?Domat . a travaillé pour la société nouvelle que Richelieu et Louis XIV tiraient peu à peu du chaos. C'est au profit du présent qu'il interroge le passé, les lois romaines et les coutumes, les soumettant les unes et les autres aux principes éternels de la justice et du christianisme. Il est incomparablement le plus grand jurisconsulte du dix-septième siècle. Les «Lois civiles dans leur ordre naturel» sont comme la préface du Code Napoléon? (cité selon Rosenwald, col. 477).Le tome second qui contient ?«Le Droit Public» n'est de fait que la continuation du premier des ?Lois civiles? Dans son ?Legum Delectus? Domat offre à l'usage de l'école et du for un abrégé en latin des lois tirées du Digeste et du Code Justinien.Les pages de titres imprimées en noir et en rouge montrent les armes royales fleurdélisées, surmonté de la couronne des rois de France.

The 1745 volume slightly damaged at head of spine. Occasional spotting, for example a rust stain on p. 121 and a small stain in the outer margin on pp. 103-16 and 249-66. Plate X with browning in the margin which is protruding from the rest of the insert. The 1746 volume with tear in the margin on the first index leaf. Plate I attached to the outer margin of p. 71. Contemporary signature on title leaves. Plate II lacking. Otherwise complete, not least in the six parts containing Triewald's serial on Swedish sericulture with it's four plates.Löwendahl China illustrata nova 433 och 435 for Triewald. Three of the plates with illustrations copied from woodcuts by Jiao Bingzhen from "Yuzhi Gengzhi tu". The latter work, containing 23 plates, was presented to the Swedish Academy of Sciences by its member Hans Teurloen, who was supercargo on the Swedish East India Company's ship Stockholm during its journeys in 1737-39 and 1740-42. Mårten Triewald (1691-1747) introduced the thought that Sweden could become a self-sufficient producer of silk by cultivation of mulberry and silkworm farming, in accordance with the mercantilist ideas which were prevalent at the time. He discussed the subject with Linnaeus and his pupil Christoffer Tärnström, who received thorough instructions to investigate the matter further during his scientific journey to China. The silk-dream lived on in Swedish scientific circles for a long time and only at the end of the 19th century, after decades of extensive and fruitless efforts, the utopian idea was finally laid to rest. Apart from this, the volumes also contain six essays by Linnaeus: "Stormväders fogeln beskrifven" [A description of the fulmar], the famous first description of aphasia, "Glömska af alla substantiva och i synnerhet namn", "Pomerantz med inneslutet foster beskrifven" [The Seville orange . described], "Om lyckte-matken ifrån China" [On the Chinese glow-worm], "Om den obekanta växten Limnia" [On the unknown plant species of Limnia] and "Om boskaps siukan" [On the cattle plague]. Plate II, which is lacking in the 1746 volume, is a geometric plate belonging to Fredric Palmqvist's "Mechaniskt problem angående fallande kulor". [Attributes: Hard Cover]
