Memoria sullo stato attuale dell' areometria. Padua, Giuseppe e Fratelli Penada, 1803. Small folio (ca. 23 x 32 cm). With engraved folding plate (40 x 25.5 cm) illustrating the discussed hydrometers. Contemporary tree calf, with gold-tooled sides, richly gold-tooled spine.
WorldCat (3 copies). Very rare work on hydrometers by the Italian scientist Giambatista Polcastro (ca. 1767-1813) in which he discusses the designs by Fahrenheit, Nicholson and Baumé and describes his own design of an hydrometer, an instrument used to measure the density of liquids. Not much is known of the author only that he was a gifted writer and musician, and published only one other work Nuovo acciarino pneumatico (ca. 1800).With a short manuscript description of the work on paste-down. The title-page slightly thumbed, otherwise in very good condition.
