Tentamina Quaedam Physiologica diversis temporibus & occasionibus conscripta a Roberto Boyle, cum ejusdem Historia fluiditatis et firmitatis, ex Anglico in Latinum sermonem translata.

These essays are the first edition of Boyle's work in Latin to be printed on the continent. Physiologica in this sense included discourses on physics, chemistry, meteorology, medicine & related subjects as well as observations that we would still classify as physiology [e.g. dog's digestive system]. There are accounts of purely chemical research.

According to Fulton "the importance of this work lies in the fact that in a very real sense it was a prologue to the Sceptical Chymist since it continued the attack on the alchemists began in New experiments, and actually it was as much of a landmark in the history of chemistry'. The book helped to establish Boyle's reputation in continental Europe.

Three studies:

1). Tentamina quaedam de infido Experimentorum successu.
2). Specimen unum atque alterum e quibus constat, quantopere Experimenta Chymica.
3). Historia Fluiditatis et Firmitais.

With woodcut title vignette, contemporary calf, very prettily rebacked, morocco spine label, and stamping on the spine.

12mo: 424 pages. An important Elzevier printing.

From the library, with ex libris, of Robert Hayhurst, famed book collector. Wing 1376; Fulton 29.

This is an exceptionally rare work by the famed chemist Robert Boyle.

    I do not think the costs are "huge". The book is very carefully wrapped (I buy bubble wrap, brown paper, tape) and needs to be taken to the drop-off for Mondial Relay, which is 15 kilometres from my house. I am sorry you are displeased with the costs, but I am not sure how they could be cheaper. Best wishes, Mike
