On offer is an original handwritten Latin mathematics manuscript detailing the instruction and works of Abbot Giuseppe Calandrelli (1749 - 1827) who was a famous Italian astronomer and mathematician. After the Jesuit order was suppressed, after the direction of the Collegio Romano was given over to priests from other orders, young Calandrelli perfected his scientific studies and became the substitute for his maestro, Father François Jacquier. He earned many prestigious titles: giving physics lessons after the professor died; director of the Accademia di Fisica, entrusted by the Pope to bring electricity to the Papal Palace on the Quirinal Hill, among others. He founded a school of astronomy in Rome. This manuscript dated 1807 is divided in IX books and is adorned with 24 original folding drawings in the end. On the frontispiece there is a Masonic drawing. Ex libris of Andrae Belli, surgeon, official and doctor at the hospital of Santa Maria della Consolazione in Rome. This manuscript is assuredly the geometry textbook Andrea Belli used for his mathematics lessons in Rome at the Collegio Romano with Giuseppe Calandrelli. Original full vellum binding. Pages: 4 + 166 + 24 folding drawings. Complete. Size: 20 cm x 13,50 cm; 7.80 in. x 5.50 in. G+
