Notes: Scarce complete set of Wolff's scientific writings, pure and applied. Vol. i has a number of pieces of paper (varying sizes) loosely inserted, with notes in Latin in a small neat hand. Some of these make reference to both earlier and later works and journal articles on the topic in question, the latest date we find being 1804.
