Full title: CATALOGO RAGIONAT0 DELLE ROCCE E DELLE ALTRE PRODUZIONI MINERALI DEI MONTI EUGANEI. TRATTO DALL'ORITTOLOGIA EUGANEA. Large 4to, orig. wrappers (foot of spine a little frayed). First edition. Rio (1765-1845), was director of the philosophical and mathematical faculty of the University of Padua and a member of numerous Italian scientific societies. The Euganean hills, one of the four distinct volcanic districts of the Italian peninsula, were the subject of much study by the geologists of the 18th and 19th century. This work details the mineralogy of the area with very complete notes and references. There are a large number of interesting marginal annotations in a contemporary (authorial?) hand.
