Bella antiporta incisa dal De Hooghe, 10 tavv. in rame intercalate nel testo, 28 tavv. f.t. + 2 figure n.t. Prima ed unica edizione latina di grande importanza. "Redi's masterpiece is considered to be Esperienze.1668, in which he disproved the doctrine of spontaneous generation in insects, inherited from aristotle and still considered dogma. The microscope revealed in insects an organisation as marvelous as it was unsuspected" (D.S.B. XI, p. 341). Veramente rara, manca a Berghman, Rahir, Willems, Choix, Garrison-Morton e Brunet. Un lieve alone a varie carte interne che non tocca assolutamente le tavole e le figure. Altrimenti ottimo esemplare con incisioni in eccellente tiratura. Confronta Dibner e Horblit. * Prandi n° 8 "Raro"; * Vinciana 1746; * Graesse VI 58; * Krivatsy 9452; * Waller 11937; * Nissen ZBI 3320. [f82] [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
