The first edition of this scientific treatise where the author wants to promote the manifacturing of iron pots in the papal state. "Si tratta di un originale libretto ispirato da intenti scientifici e insieme divulgativi; il Corona, preoccupato della salute dei cittadini e dell'economia dello stato, dimostra gli aspetti negativi della manifattura del rame, rilevando la pericolositą di questo metallo dal momento dell'estrazione a quello della lavorazione e dell'utilizzazione nel vasellame domestico. Al rame il Corona contrappone il ferro "metallo indigeno e salubre". D.B. It., vol. 29, pp. 290-3.
