Riccardi I, 634:5. - RARE FIRST EDITION of Ximenes treatise on hydraulics which contains a description of his improved instruments for measuring water flow velocity and sea drift. In this work, he illustrates two mechanical devices conceived and constructed by him: the 'stadera a molla' (spring strut) and the ' tamburo con ruote a ventola' (drum with fan wheels), two instruments able to determine the variation of the speed of a fluid in different layers (superficial, intermediate and deep). These hydrometric techniques, developed by him undoubtedly constituted a considerable contribution to the development of the new physical discipline. - Visit our website for additional images and information.
