4to (232 x 174mm). [iv], 490pp., . 13 engraved folding plates. Contemporary vellum, title gilt to spine, marbled endpapers, speckled edges. Old pencil notation comments that this is a rare complete copy, although we located an institutional copy with a preliminary section of 12pp. after title page of Sacra Cesarea Cattolica Real Maesta, not present here. A lovely copy of a scarce copy book with the half-title often lacking (present here but not in the institutional copy we located); one copy sold at auction in 1975. Vallisnieri was a pupil of Malpighi at Bologna and eventually became professor of practical medicine at Padua. Apart from his medical work, he was most active in entomology and continued the studies in medicine, entomology, zoology, and natural history. Bookseller Inventory # 6467
