Venice: Battista Tramontin, 1689. Vellum. Very Good -. The very scarce 1689 original printing of Antonio Biondini's "Prattica D'Algebra" ("Treatise of Algebra"). Published in Venice in its commonly-read Latin, the original vellum binding is still strong and firmly in place. Forgivable spotting and staining to the panels, internally the pages are surprisingly clean and bright. Octavo, decorative mottled edges. (Cited in "History of Mathematics", Vol. II, pg. 409, David Eugene Smith, Ginn and Company, Boston, 1923).
