PROSPECTUS.
Trattenimento di Fisica Sperimentale che Davano I Signori Convittori del Romano Collegio de' Nobili Il Giorno 3, Settembre 1844.

Description:
A single folio sheet folded to four pages, head-line title, a wood-engraved vignette below showing a globe, map, telescope and measuring instruments, the text comprising: Introduzione - SIG. FRANCESO MALATESTA. Della Carte Fotogeniche e di altri mezzi fisica atti a produrre le immagini. - SIG. PAOLO ROSA. Delle Luce Voltiana della Metallocromia. - SIG. SAVERIO LAVAGGI. Dell' Apparato Magneto-Elettrico a Scosse Graduate e dell' arte d'imprimere sull' acciajo per mezzo delle correnti magneto-elettriche. - SIG. LORENZO LEONI. Delle Macchine a Vapore. - SIG. FRANCESCO MALATESTA. In Fine Rende Le Dovute Grazie IL SIG. PAOLO ROSA.. There is a mid-line horizontal fold, now a little dusty, the top half of the last page is a bit dusty and foxed from being the most exposed, else a very good copy.

*COPAC records [British Library] a somewhat similar publication from the Jesuit Collegio Romano in 1847, for students of philosophy. This prospectus is particularly interesting for the description of the course on photography, discussing the work of Fox Talbot and Verignon, and especially the chemistry of daguerrotypes, a mere five years after the first announcements by Daguerre and Fox Talbot, and in the same year as the latter's 'Pencil of Nature'.
