290 HALES, Stephen [1677-1761] EMASTATICA OSIA STATICA DEGLI ANIMALI: ESPERIENZE IDRAULICHE FATTE SUGLI ANIMALI VIVENTI DAL SIGNOR HALES, TRADOTTA DALL’INGLESE NEL FRANZESE E COMMENTATA DAL SIGNOR DE DAUVAGES E DAL FRANZESE NUOVAMENTE TRANSPORTATA NELL’ITALIANO IDIOMA.
Napoli Giuseppe Raimondi 1750 Hardcover 
First of this edition. Volume Primo and Volume Secondo bound together. Thick 8vo in paper covered boards with title inked on spine. Cover and endpapers replaced in simple period binding with Forni bookplate on front paste-down. Pages uncut. Engraved, illustrated initial caps and head- and tail-pieces. Fold-out engraving with a number of figures at rear of Vol. 1. preceding index. [30], 220, [2], [bl.]; [8], 280 pages. Volume I is an Italian translation of the French translation by French physician and Botanist Francois Boissier de Sauvages of the English Hales’ “Haemastaticks.” Volume II has a translation into Italian of Hales’ work on bladder and kidney stones and two medical dissertations by de Sauvages and “Statica de’ vegetabili ed analisi dell’ ari.” Front hinge opening; occasional light foxing. Light stain in fore-edge margin in last pages of ?the second volume. Hales is known as the founder of plant physiology and was the first to draw the correlation between blood pressure in animals and the pressure of rising sap in plants. He was noted for his “statistical” studies with live animals on animal circulation (the role of the beat of the heart and blood pressure). He also studied the instrumental role of air in the production and growth of animals and vegetables. The author of the translations is Mariangela Ardinghelli (1731(?)-1825), (birth dates given as 1728,1735 and 1756) a woman scholar in physics and mathematics, who in the view of French astronomer Joseph Jérôme de Lalande, was “at the head of all the illustrious women who make the glory of their sex in Italy.” Centered primarily in Sicily, Aesinghelli was well-connected within the Paris Academy of Science and internationally known within the scholarly community. Text in Italian. Osler 1083 for the Genève, 1744 French language edition, and translations. #117
