Και Μετεωρολογια κατ Επιτομην Μετφρασθεητα
(Elements of Experimental Physics and Meteorology)
A rare scientific book on experimental physics, optics and meteorology in Greek language. The book is richly illustrated with depictions of various measuring instruments, experiments and diagrams.
This book was printed after the liberation of Greek land from the Ottoman oppressor. During this era of Greek nationalism culture and sciences started slowly to flourish once printing started since the Ottomans resisted adopting the printing press and forbid printing of non-islamic texts.
No other other copies of this book are currently for sale.
