Instruments to Catalogue Scientific Apparatuses

Mara Miniati


The study of Italian scientific-historical objects has been neglected ./Or years. This is the reason .why important documents concerning these ob-jects have been lost or dispersed.

It is necessary to compare the newly proposed catalographic methods with ones already used for artistical, archaelogical and architectonical objects.
