(OCoLC)936903636
Material Type: Original artwork
Document Type: Book
All Authors / Contributors: Francesco Maria Soldini; Gaetano Cambiagi
OCLC Number: 53019892
Notes: Engraved title page, printed à la poupée in blue and reddish-brown.
Author's name from dedication.
Imprint from colophon.
Epigraph on title page: "Curiosum nobij [correctly, nobis] Natura ingenium dedit. Seneca de Vita Beata cap. 32." The quotation actually comes from chapter 5 of Seneca's De otio.
Collation: 8vo: engraved title + [pi]1 a-q⁸ [$2 signed]; 129 leaves, pages [2 unnumbered] 1-256 + 8 unnumbered plates. The preliminary leaf contains the dedication (verso blank).
The 8 anonymous etched plates may be printed in blue or reddish brown; one copy (sold by Christie's in 2006: sale 1769, lot 470) has 2 in ochre and 6 in green and ochre à la poupée). The etched initials are printed in blue or reddish brown; in some copies the plates, placed as apparently intended at the beginning of each chapter, are printed in the opposite color.
On the plates as evidence of "the extent to which evolutionary ideas circulated during the Enlightenment" see F. Barbagli, "In retrospect: the earliest picture of evolution?", in Nature 462 (19 November 2009), page 289. Barbagli notes that "the iconographical content of the images is independent from the writing."
Description: [2], 256 pages, [9] leaves of plates : color illustrations (engravings) ; 22 cm. (8vo)
