Condition Report

Rare first edition. Costantino Gatta, 1673-1741, was a writer and doctor. The author wrote the work when, intrigued by an extraordinary event that happened in that year, the exudation of the statue of St. Michael, tried to provide, at least partially, an explanation in physical terms of that event, making it precede it from a detailed historical-geographical information of his native region.
