Condition Report

First edition of the first important riparian treatise. Guglielmini's, 1655-1710, approach to hydraulics was through extensive field observation, and Gamba praises the work not only for its classical hydraulics, but for the clarity of its verbal and mathematical expression. The book discusses the nature of rivers and their parts, the motion of water, estuaries and confluents, riverbanks, and the kind of materials carried by rivers. --- Gamba 1641: "Edizione originale e rara"; Libreria Vinciana 1659; Riccardi I1, 643, 91: "Meno pregiata, ma pił rara"; Roberts/Tr. 152f.; Wellcome III, 177.
