Provenance: contemporarary engraved book-plates on front free endpaper of the Turin bookshop of Joseph Gamba and of the library of Charles Giulio (ownership inscription dated 1819 in ink on preliminary blank leaf, and blue ink circular stamp for Biblioteca Giulio on recto of rear free endpaper). Cotte published this first comprehensive study & was the founder of modern metereology. This treatise of his experiments and observations created an international response and considerable scientific correspondence. The descriptions of new instruments, new methods and new theories from other contemporary scientists, such as Franklin's theories on the atmosphere, was central to its success: featuring tables and illustrations of a lightning rod, barometrograph, barometers, hygrometers, rain gauges, thermometers and anemometers. "Chez Joseph Gamba, Marchand Libraire à Turin" was an eighteenth century bookseller dealing especially in fine mathematical and scientific books. Dr. Charles Giulio was a scientist & member of the College of Medicine, & of the Agricultural Society of Turin. He published learned articles on agriculture and also with Francesco ROSSI, and Anton-Maria VASSALLI-EANDI, "Simples expériences galvaniques sur la tête et le tronc de trois hommes, peu de temps après leur décapitation". L'Académie de Turin, 1801: electrical experiments on three mens' heads and torsos, shortly after they had been beheaded! WorldCat locates 24 copies, of which only one in the UK and one in the USA.
