Condition Report

A rare first edition. The work is essentially a practical character on the construction of solar clocks, with the addition of gnomonic plates. This is the variant B censored in Iccu. Prestigious is the provenance: the book presents the bookplate of the Piemontese noble Michele Saverio Provana del Sabbione.
