Condition Report

Work of great commitment and breadth, not easy to find complete, having appeared over a few years. "The first tome contains the treaty of arithmetic, the second the treaty of algebra, the third the flat and solid geometry with applications to the surveying, the flat and spherical trigonometry, the logarithmic tables, the fourth the analytic geometry and the conic sections, the fifth, the sixth and the seventh, the differential and integral calculus ... We limit ourselves to point out the judgment given by the high Lagrangia in the letter directed to the author Bibl Modenese, and inserted in the volume VII ... which does not doubt to declare it the most mathematical task among those who until then had been published "(Riccardi, I / col. 594). On the Dominican father Odoardo Gherli (1730-80), Modenese, cf. Tiraboschi,, II / p. 393-4 (recalls that Domenico Pollera, a pupil of Gherli, died at the age of 26 in 1777, just released the last volume of the work): "Il pił ampio, e il pił pieno, corso di Matematica, che si fosse ancora veduto".
