VD17 1:054846F. FIRST EDITION, one of three issues printed in 1676. This one with title page blank. The dissertation is inspired by Lana Terzi's Prodromo. Lohmeier's treatise (which was reprinted twice in the seventeenth century) has been described as "an impudent piracy" (in The Aerial Ship, 1910) but whilst some sections are a verbatim copy of Sturm's translation of Prodromo he includes mention of experiments made by Boyle, Toricelli and Guericke that Lana Terzi does not mention.
