An extremely rare offprint from the Memorie della Reale Accademia delle Scienze di Torino on Brownian Movement and a contribution to the ‘heated controversy with the best known botanists of the world [started by the] discovery that made [Amici] famous ... that of the fertilization of phanerogams, particularly the travel of the pollen tube through the pistil of the flower (1821)’ (DSB). Botto quotes scientists from Buffon and Needham to Brown and Herschel. He was professor of physics at the University of Turin and a member of the Reale Academia. He published several works on physical and chemical problems.
