Napoli, 2015; br., pp. 72. In accordo con le poetiche contemporanee il flusso incontrollato della parola è al centro della ricerca di Ivana Tata, fuori dal passato o dal futuro, ricomposta nel presente per quella depurazione dello sguardo, quell'asetticità della resa stilistica, che sono esperienza poetante della segnicità oltre le dimensioni dell'interruzione.

Buchbeschreibung Lugduni Batavorum, Apud Petrum vander Aa, 1711. Folio (395 x 255mm) pp. (4), 15, (8), with engraved frontispiece, engraved portrait of Rumphius, one engraved title vignette, 4 engravings in the text and 60 engraved plates. Contemporary calf, richly gilt decorated spine with 6 raised bands (minor old restoration to spine). George Cuvier's copy, with his stamp on title. A very fine copy of this important work on shells and minerals, the first modern work on tropical fauna. First Latin edition, the first Dutch edition was published in Amsterdam in 1705. Rumphius was employed by the Dutch East India Company and spent the greater part of his life on the island of Ambon, a small but important trading centre in the Dutch East Indies. "(It) is full of accurate and detailed observations on the invertebrate animals encountered by him and the molluscs are given special attention. First and foremost he was a brilliant field naturalist. He was a man with a remarkable gift for descriptions." (Dance p. 27). Rumphius was far ahead of his time by accurate recording of locality and the attention he paid to molluscan ecology. It is only recently known that the fine plates of this work are by Maria Sibylla Merian.The association with George Cuvier (1773-1838) is interesting. Cuvier is considered one of the most important French zoologists. He published a great number of books, some dealing with shells of which the most important one is his 'Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire et à l'anatomie des Mollusques', Paris 1817. In 1999 an English translation by E.M. Beekman of the first Dutch edition appeared with an excellent introduction.Nissen ZBI, 3520. Artikel-Nr. 9223
