First edition of Poleni's first book. Poleni was professor of astronomy, physics and mathematics at the University of Padua. This volume contains Poleni's description of a "pin-wheel" mechanical calculating machine, which he devised himself as he was not able to find descriptions of the construction of the machines of Pascal and Leibniz; it is considered "the first detailed printed description of a mechanical calculating machine" (Matthew L. Jones, Reckoning with matter, Chicago, 2016, p.130).
