1687 Francesco Redi Science Experiments on Insects Vipers SNAKE Natural History

About the object

Francesco Redi was a 17th-century Italian physician who recorded his most famous biology experiments in “Experiments on the Generation of Insects”. This work, first published in 1668, disproved the vipers could consume wine, break glass, and that their venom was poisonous if ingested. His observations on snakes helped establish many of the accepted understandings of snakes, particularly venomous snakes. Redi played an important role in refuting ‘spontaneous generation’ – the theory that maggots arose from rotted meat. He was also the very first biologist to describe ectoparasites, ticks, parasite flies, and interesting experiments of chemotherapy. He discusses his observations on hippopotamuses and the capybara. This 1687 edition features six full-page engravings foliage, leaves, Annona tree fruit, and snake eggs. It is taken directly from the first edition published in Florence and includes Redi’s famous ‘Letters’ in addition to his ‘Experiments’. This collection of works was published before his most famous work ‘Bacco in Toscana’ a famous literary work on wine. $1,500.00 In stock Add to cart Free shipping wordwide!
