Abstract

<title> SUMMARY </title>Starting from the recent publication of the mathematician and chemist Anton Maria Lorgna's private library inventory, this paper analyses in detail its peculiarities. Through the analysis of the manuscript correspondence between Lorgna and the Paduan book-seller Carlo Scapin and his Italian and European friends, the A. examines how the library developed. He underlines that the existence of particular groups of books is to be connected with Lorgna's interest in peculiar researches, as it is confirmed by his manuscripts on those arguments kept in the Public Library of Verona.
