    Dear friends,

    my name is Francesco Luzzini, and I am Edition Open Sources Postdoctoral Fellow at the University of Oklahoma (and, currently, visiting scholar at the Max Planck Institute for the History of Science in Berlin).
    I am currently working on a critical edition of the “Primi Itineris per Montes Specimen Physico-Medicum” (1705), a naturalistic manuscript written by the physician and natural philosopher Antonio Vallisneri (1661-1730).

    In 1705, Vallisneri sent a copy of this document to Hans Sloane, hoping eagerly for publication in the “Philosophical Transactions”. But this honor was not granted to the piece, which remained unpublished.
    In order to shed light on the reasons of this missed publication, I am looking for any letter written by Sloane to Vallisneri in 1705/1706. I know that you are working on the Sloane Letters Project: would it be possible to receive information concerning the existence of such documents? If so, would it be possible to receive the transcriptions, or even just the facsimile copies of them?

    Please, don’t hesitate to contact me, should you need any further clarification.

    Francesco Luzzini
