Torino, Tip. E Lit. Camilla e Bertolero, 1887 340x253 mm. 12 ll., printed only on recto. printed in white on black strong paper. Original printed and illustrated wrappers. On front wrap two colored figures, depicting the ‘normal state ‘ and the ‘pathological state’ of Earth. The same images reproduced on title. A full-page lithographic illustration on l. 3, showing a destroyed building in Taggia (Ligury). Spine light frayed, and repaired; otherwise an excellent copy. The first, unique and rare edition of this curious work by the ingenious veterinary from Turin, written and published for charity, after the earthquake that had struck Ligury and Piedmont on February 1887. A literary divertissement rather a scientific discussion of the nature and causes of earthquakes. Baratta, p. 947.
