Descripción: Cosimo Giunti, Florence, 1615. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. GRAZIA, Vincenzio di. Considerazioni di M. Vincenzio di Grazia sopra'l Discorso di Galileo Galilei. Intorno alle cose che stanno in sù l'acqua, e che inquella si muovono. Florence, Zanobi Pignoni, 1613. 86 pp, (2). 4tos, untrimmed and bound in contemporary Italian decorative publisher¿s boards; some wear and minor restoration; occasional minor staining and some scattered foxing, but a wonderfully genuine volume in generally fine condition. A remarkable conjunction: First editions of two scarce and important Galileana ¿ an attack on Galileo¿s theory of hydrostatics by Vincenzo di Grazia bound alongside Galileo¿s lengthy defence of his position. Of great interest for showing the methodological interrelationship of Galileo¿s physics and his astronomy. The two works are found here in a well-preserved contemporary state, untrimmed and bound for a 17th century follower of the power struggle between Galileo and the Aristotelians. Bound first is Vincenzio di Grazia¿s critique of Galileo¿s Discorso al serenissimo Don Cosimo II (Florence, Giunti, 1612) representing a staunch defence of the Aristotelian understanding of materials and their buoyancy ¿ a position far removed from Galileo¿s own strongly empirical reconsideration of hydrostatics in terms of what we today call specific gravity. Di Grazia imputes to Galileo six principles concerning elements, buoyancy, and scientific methodology (cf Drake, pp 219-20). All in all, Di Grazia sees in Galileo¿s new observational science a dangerous method which confounds common sense and sound theoretical reasoning: ¿concerning those things that cannot be grasped through the senses or, if so, only poorly, [Galileo] insists on explaining them through the senses, as with the cavities of the moon, the sun-spots, and a thousand more things like that¿ (Considerazioni, pp 82-3). The second work, Risposta alle Opposizioni del S. Lodovico delle Colombe, e del S. Vincenzo di Grazia, gives Galileo¿s ripost to these criticisms, together with an attack on an old enemy, Ludovico delle Colombe. As he would do numerous times, Galileo hides behind the name of a devoted follower, Benedetto Castelli. However, a manuscript of the Risposta in Galileo¿s own hand discovered in the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale has convinced authorities such as Drake that it is, in fact, principally authored by Galileo himself.

Descripción: William Leyboun, London, 1661. 2 parts in 1, tall quarto. (13 x 8 1/4 inches). [14], 503, [1], [24]; [14], 118, [6]pp. 4 engraved plates. Lacks the half-title and without the errata leaf found in some copies. (A few expert repairs to tears at edges of preliminary leaves). Expertly bound to style in period calf, covers bordered with a gilt double fillet, spine with raised bands in six compartments, morocco lettering piece in the second compartment, the others with a repeat decoration in gilt First edition in English of Galileo's Dialogo, his celebrated defence of the Copernican view of the solar system: a milestone in the history of science. After years of being forbidden to teach the Copernican theory, in 1632 Galileo was given the opportunity to express these views by the new Pope, Urban VIII, his friend, admirer and patron for more than a decade. Urban granted Galileo permission to write a book about theories of the universe, "provided that the arguments for the Ptolemaic view were given an equal and impartial discussion" (DSB). Galileo's formal use of the dialogue, casting the work as a hypothetical discussion, allowed him fully to explore the Copernican model within Urban's parameters. The work "is a masterly polemic for the new science. It displays all the great discoveries in the heavens which the ancients had ignored; it inveighs against the sterility, wilfulness, and ignorance of those who defend their systems; it revels in the simplicity of Copernican thought and, above all, it teaches that the movement of the earth makes sense in philosophy, that is, in physics . The Dialogo, more than any other work, made the heliocentric system a commonplace" (PMM). In casting the Pope as the simple-minded Aristotelian Simplicius, Galileo brought upon himself arrest, trial by the Inquisition and life imprisonment. The sentence was commuted to permanent house arrest, but the printing of any of his works was forbidden. In 1664, English historian Thomas Salusbury published the present English collection of Galileo's work, including a translation of the Dialogo titled Systeme of the World, and followed by the short but important Epistle to the Grand Dutchesse Mother concerning the Authority of Holy Scripture in Philosophical Controversies (known today as the Letter to Christina), which was only the second work of Galileo's to be published in England. Apart from the two works by Galileo, Salusbury included other translations in volume I of his Collections, including Italian mathematician Benedetto Castelli's works on fluids in motion. In 1666, the Great Fire of London swept through the city, destroying many copies of this work and nearly all copies of the 1665 second volume containing the first book-length depiction of Galileo's life. (The title-page to part two of volume I mis-states that it is 'the second tome', an obvious cause of some bibliographical confusion). Salusbury died at roughly the same time, perhaps, as some believe, in the Great Fire. Carli-Favaro 276; ESTC R19153; Wing S-517. Nº de ref. de la librería 28873

Descripción: Giacomo Mascardi, Rome, 1613. Softcover. Estado de conservación: Good. GALILEO'S DEFENSE OF THE COPERNICAN THEORY, FIRST EDITION 4to, pp. (4), 164, 55, (1), plus folded table. Roman letter, little Italic; device of the Lincei Academy on title, historiated initials and engraved full-page portrait of Galileo at p. 5, 43 full-page engravings of sunspots and of Jovian satellites, several engraved tables and woodcut diagrams in text; light foxing mainly to margins, couple of tiny wormholes to gutter, light damp stain to tail of central gatherings, ink splash on f. Aii. A good copy in contemporary limp vellum, eps renewed ; two minor repairs to head and tail of spine; occasional early underlining; label of David P. Wheatland (1898-1993), founder and curator of the Collection of Historical Scientific Instruments of Harvard on front pastedown. Rare first edition of Galileo’s earliest published endorsement of the Copernican theory, in its most complete variant. Two issues appeared in Rome by Mascardi, one with three additional letters by the Jesuit scientist Christoph Scheiner. Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) was one of the greatest mathematicians and astronomers of all time. His cutting-edge discoveries revolutionised early modern physics and eventually provoked the famous condemnation of the Holy Inquisition. Amongst many other acknowledgements, he was a member of the prestigious Academy of Lincei, a pioneering scientific fellowship established in Rome by Federico Cesi. Galileo wrote the Istoria e dimostrazione in the form of three letters to his fellow academician Marcus Welser of Augsburg, arguing that sunspots appeared on the surface of the sun: they were not tiny satellites, as the traditional Aristotelian interpretation suggested. Based on telescopic observation of their motion, Galileo concluded that the sun rotated on a fixed axis like the Earth and other planets, thus embracing and somehow overstepping Copernicus’s view. In his usual combative tone, he maintained: ‘this planet also, perhaps no less than horned Venus, agrees admirably with the great Copernican system on which propitious winds now universally are seen to blow .’ His further discovery of the Satellites of Jupiter is described and illustrated with 5 plates. The work also includes Galileo's first written account of the phases of Venus and Mercury as well as some considerations on the many puzzling mysteries surrounding Saturn. His circumstantial approval of the Copernican model anticipated many of his later theories and the related political and religious consequences. This issue contains a second part entitled De maculis solaribus tres epistolae, comprising the three letters written to Welser by Christoph Scheiner about 1611. Scheiner was a Jesuit scholar and professor in Ingolstadt, Rome, Vienna and Nyssa. A pugnacious defender of the Ptolemaic system, he was a major antagonist of Galileo. His epistles, in which he states that sunspots are small planets, prompted Galileo to publish his account of his own observations. This was the first of several other debated between the two scholars, involving also the paternity of the discovery of the spots. The two issues of the editio princeps of Istoria e dimostrazioni were published at the same time; apparently, the first was meant to be distributed in Italy (where there would be no copyright dispute on Scheiner’s letters), whereas the second was tailored for export. The edition bears a beautiful engraved portrait of Galileo within architectural border, drawn by the famous artist Francesco Villamena (1564-1624). Two putti are representations of astronomical science: one is measuring with a compass, the other is observing the sky with a telescope. BM STC It. 17th, 373; Cinti, 44; Carli and Favaro, 60; Riccardi, I, 509 (without Schenier’s letters); Waller, 12046; Dawson, 2587 (‘[This issue] is generally considered to be the rarer of the two, and certainly to be preferred, as it gives us the full story of these celebrated discoveries’).

Descripción: Rome Giacomo Mascardi 1623., 1623. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. 1st Edition. 4to. [22 x 16.5 cm], (7) ff., including engraved title and portrait of Galileo signed Villamoena, 236 pp. Bound in 19th-century vellum. Excellent. First edition, first issue of an outstanding document in the history of science. The work grew out of the appearance of three comets in the autumn of 1618 and articulate the principal arguments of whether they were atmospheric or celestial phenomena. More importantly, Il Saggiatore is intimately connected with, if indeed it did not originate, the rift between Galileo and the Jesuits which ultimately saw the astronomer imprisoned by the Inquisition after the publication of the Dialogo in 1632. Il Saggiatore is often called Galileo’s "scientific manifesto," and is certainly one of the most celebrated polemics in the history of physical science. It is the first of Galileo’s works written after the Inquisiton’s warning not to propound or defend the Copernican theory, which of course he does, albeit in covert form. The engraved illustrations in Il Saggiatore include some of the earliest published of the rings of Saturn, Mars in inferior and superior conjunction, and the phases of Venus. The work comes in several issues, of which this is the first, with the short errata list correcting 16 errors.* Cinti 73; Riccardi I.511, 628; De Backer-Sommervogel III.1684-86; L’Accademia dei Lincei e la cultura europea nel XVII secolo, 14 (Grassi), 15 (Galileo) and generally pp. 75ff.; Drake & O'Malley, The Controversy of the Comets of 1618, p. vi.

Descripción: Cosimo Giunti, Florence, 1612. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Near Fine. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. (2) ff, 77 pp, (1), (1) f with printer¿s emblem. Bound with: [GALILEI, Galileo & CASTELLI, Benedetto]. Risposta alle Opposizioni del S. Lodovico delle Colombe, e del S. Vincenzo di Grazia. Florence, Cosimo Giunti, 1615. (1) ff, (2), 319 [ie 335] pp with numerous mispaginations, (5) including printer¿s emblem. Bound in contemporary limp vellum with MS title on spine, ¿Galileo Galilei Opera¿, internally very fresh, an excellent copy in all respects. A remarkable pairing of two Galileana bound together by a contemporary follower of the power struggle between Galileo and the Aristotelians. The second augmented edition of Galileo¿s classic on hydrostatics, published the same year within months of the first edition, represents his first published work in physics (Drake, p. 179). The Discorso is hailed by historians of science as having united for the first time two previously separate disciplines: statics and dynamics, resulting in a new science of mechanics, containing his first published statements on the concept of moment, an abstract concept of physical force which has been shown to have dominated his early physical thinking, and contains several first announcements concerning some of his great astronomical discoveries relating to sunspots, the triple form of Saturn, and the phases of Venus. The present 2nd edition contains significant additional text concerning this important concept. The Risposta, one of the scarcest of Galileo¿s works on the market, contains his lengthy and scathing replies to his critics only a year before his official castigation by the Catholic Church. Two years after the publication of the Sidereus Nuncius which assured his place in the history of science, and after displaying his telescopic discoveries in Rome, Galileo returned to Florence and devoted himself to the study of floating bodies, ¿the real, intrinsic and total cause why some bodies float and others sink.¿ In the Discorso, Galileo supports Archimedes and opposes Aristotle on the behavior of bodies in water, arguing that the reason some solids sink is the excess of their weight over the weight of water. Employing the concept of moment¿ ¿the force with which the mover moves and the floating body resists¿ ¿and the principle of virtual velocities, Galileo far surpasses the hydrostatic considerations of Archimedes: ¿The new method enables Galileo to unify statics and dynamics into a new science of mechanics which became the foundation of modern physics¿ (Rose, The Italian Renaissance of Mathematics, p. 287). As noted above, the second edition may be distinguished from the first by the additional material contained therein; notably, Galileo drew attention to these additions by printing them in Roman type rather than Italic. Among these additions are Galileo¿s first announcements of the Sun¿s rotation period, his announcements of sunspots, and his discovery of the ¿horns¿ of Saturn. Nº de ref. de la librería 5083

Descripción: [Florence, Palazzo Strozzi, second half of the seventeenth century], 1680. 4to (258 x 198 mm), ff [30, foliated 25-54], in a fine scribal hand, brown ink on paper; second work in a volume with eight other manuscript texts in different hands (foliated [2] 1-285), general title 'Materie Varie' with Strozzi arms, some general browning, some restoration as a result of ink corrosion or water damage to some of the documents (but not affecting the Galileo), uncut in recent vellum. £32,500A manuscript version (containing variants of the text) of Galileo's celebrated 'Letter to Christina' of Lorraine (1565-1637), Grand Duchess of Tuscany, which was written in 1615 but not published until 1636 in Strasbourg. This is a work that circulated widely in manuscript, and it was via manuscript copies such as the above that some of Galileo's most controversial ideas about Copernicanism and the relationship between Scripture and science were disseminated. These manuscript versions contain textual variants that distinguish them from the printed text.The Letter is a 'superb manifesto of the freedom of thought . Its purpose was to silence all theological objections to Copernicus. Its result was the precise opposite: it became the principal cause of the prohibition of Copernicus, and of Galileo's downfall' (Koestler). Galileo in it Galileo upholds the primacy of science and argues for its freedom from theological interference. He boldly asserts that scientific truth has priority over theology when it comes to accounting for the natural world: 'Scripture teaches us how to go to heaven but not how the heavens go'. The work concludes with an unequivocal argument for the truth of the Copernican system. The ideas expressed were instrumental in the Inquisition's prosecution of Galileo and condemnation of Copernicanism. It was finally published outside Italy by Matthias Bernegger, who made an accompanying Latin translation. This publication was condemned by the Holy Office and its distribution in Catholic countries forbidden.'In December 1613 theological objections to Copernicanism were raised, in Galileo's absence, at a court dinner, where Galileo's part was upheld by Benedetto Castelli. Learning of this, Galileo wrote a long letter to Castelli concerning the inadmissibility of theological interference in purely scientific questions. After the public denunciation [of Galileo] in 1614, Castelli showed this letter to an influential Dominican priest, who made a copy of it and sent it to the Roman Inquisition for investigation. Galileo then promptly sent an authoritative text of the letter to Rome and began its expansion into the Letter to Christina, composed in 1615 and eventually published in 1636. Galileo argued that neither the Bible nor nature could speak falsely and that the investigation of nature was the province of the scientist, while the reconciliation of scientific facts with the language of the Bible was that of the theologian' (Stillman Drake in DSB).This work brought to a head the confrontation between Copernicanism and the dogmas of the Church. In 1616 'Nicolaus Copernicus's On the Revolutions of the Heavenly Spheres is, for the first time, placed on the Index of forbidden books by the Catholic church, which forbids, in particular, the teaching of a sun-centered universe. Galileo Galilei is summoned before the Inquisition for teaching the sun-centered theory and for suggesting that it is not the Scriptures but misinterpretations of them which have led to the supposition that the Bible confirms the geocentric theory. Galileo is dismissed with a warning to stop supporting the Copernican viewpoint' (Parkinson Breakthroughs).From 1615 on the work circulated in manuscript copies, such as the present one, as it was too controversial and dangerous to publish. These copies were quasi-public editions, made to advance Galileo's cause, and as part of his campaign to influence leading theologians to support the Copernican system.Antonio Favaro, the editor of Galileo's works for the National Edition (1890-1909), analysed thirty-fo.

Descripción: Florence, 1632. FIRST EDITION. 4to. [viii], 458, [32] pp. The engraved frontispiece facing the title by Stefano della Bella depicting Aristotle, Ptolemy and Copernicus in discussion surmounted by the Medici arms appears to be a facsimile on contemporary paper; woodcut printer’s device on title, woodcut initials, headpieces and diagrams. Contemporary vellum, Galileo and Systema Cosmica written in ink on spine; minor browning and spotting as usual. First edition of Galileo’s statement and defence of the Copernican system of heliocentrism, which directly led to his trial for heresy in Rome in 1633. The Dialogo was designed both as an appeal to the great public and as an escape from silence. In the form of an open discussion between three friends – intellectually speaking, a radical, a conservative, and an agnostic – it is a masterly polemic for the new science.

Bound in contemporary vellum, title written in ink on spine and on lower edges; usual mild discoloration and light foxing on scattered leaves; several quires browned as usual. Generally a fine, wide-margined and fresh copy. First collected edition of Galileo¿s works, appearing only a year after his death and of great interest for his 17th-century reception: this was the edition in which Newton and later eminent scientists read their Galileo. Included here are not only most of the seminal pieces written and published over a lifetime, including the Starry Messenger of 1610, the first work of modern observational astronomy, but additional publications and letters by both supporters and antagonists. Together in one work they offer a veritable panorama of scientific activity in Italy during the first half of the seventeenth century, and are critical for the history of the formation of Galileo¿s text. The Opera contains many unpublished or little-known items provided to the editors by Vincenzo Viviani, Galileo¿s friend and disciple. Among them are a number of Galileo¿s hitherto unpublished letters and experiments and the La Bilancetta, his first scientific work, written in 1586. Both the Dialogo and the letter to Christina di Lorena were censored and are, therefore, omitted. A contemporary hand noted on the final flyleaf of Vol. 2, ¿La lettura de discorsi legati insieme è interdetta¿ (¿The reading of the discourses bound together is forbidden.¿). * Cinti 132; Riccardi I.518-19.

Opere di Galileo Galilei linceo nobile fiorentino,: GALILEI, Galileo.

Descripción: Heredi del Dozza 1655-56, Bologna, 1655. First collected edition of the works of Galileo, edited by Carlo Manolessi, and appearing only a year after his death. This was the edition in which Newton and his later contemporaries read their Galileo. The volumes contain not only most of the major works written and published over his lifetime, but also substantial unpublished material, both by Galileo himself as well as by his supporters and critics. Many of these items were provided to the editor by Vincenzo Viviani, Galileo’s friend and disciple, including a number of Galileo’s hitherto unpublished letters and experiments and La Bilancetta, his first scientific work, written in 1586. The Dialogo was of course on the Index and was not included in editions of the Opere until 1744. A feature of this edition is that each work has its own separate title page, imprint and pagination, which has resulted in several copies being broken up, the individual tracts being sold individually. Carlo & Favaro 251; Cinti 132; Riccardi I 518-9. 2 vols., 4to (228 x 167 mm), contemporary flexible vellum, fully complete I: pp. [28], 48, 48, [8], 160, [4], 68, 127, [4], 264, 43, including allegorical frontispiece signed Stefano della Bella, engraved portrait of Galileo by Villamoena, and with large folding plate of proportional compass; II: pp. [2], 60, [16], 104, [4], 105-156, 48, [8], 179, [1], [2], 53-106, [2], 103-126, [8], 238 (i.e. 242), [6]. Numerous woodcut diagrams in text (collates as in Cinti, Bibliotheca Galileiana). Some scattered browning to various quires (as usual), light damp stain in the beginning of volume 2, but in general a very good and unsophistaced copy. Nº de ref. de la librería 3097

GASSENDI, Pierre (1592-1655) - GALILEI, Galileo (1564-1642): GASSENDI, Pierre (1592-1655)

Descripción: GALILEI GALILEO. 8vo; contemporary mottled calf, marbled edges; (16), 199, (1), 173, (1) pp. and 4 leaves of plates. The first title page is printed in red and black. The text is illustrated with astronomical woodcuts including images of the moon, showing its uneven, mountainous surface as discerned by Galileo through the telescope and four full-paged woodcut illustrations of stars (the Pleiades, Orion's belt, the Praesepe and Orion Nebulas). Lower outer corner of the first title-page cut off and repaired with no loss of printed text but with loss of the final part of the ownership's inscription, which now reads only "Karolus-Emmanuel de Ros". Otherwise, a very nice copy in contemporary binding.FIRST EDITION of this collection. Second edition overall of Gassendi's Institutio Astronomica (first ed. Paris, 1647). The first edition of Galileo's Sidereus Nuncius and Kepler's Dioptrice to appear in England. Gassendi's Institutio Astronomica is considered as the first modern astronomy textbook. It is divided into three sections: the first deals with the so-called theory of the spheres, the second describes astronomical theory, and the third discusses the conflicting ideas of Brahe and Copernicus. The present edition is important for the inclusion of two seminal works of telescopic astronomy: Galileo's Sidereus Nuncius (first ed. Venice, 1610), in which he announces his discovery of Jupiter's moons, and Kepler's Dioptrice (first ed. Augsburg, 1611), Kepler's brilliant explanation of how the telescope works."Galileo's 'Starry Messenger' contains some of the most important discoveries in scientific literature. Learning in the summer of 1609 that a device for making distant objects seem close and magnified had been brought to Venice from Holland, Galileo soon constructed a spy-glass of his own which he demonstrated to the notables of the Venetian Republic, thus earning a large increase in his salary as professor of mathematics at Padua. Within a few months he had a good telescope, magnifying to 30 diameters, and was in full flood of astronomical observation. Through his telescope Galileo saw the moon as a spherical, solid, mountainous body very like the earth- quite different from the crystalline sphere of conventional philosophy. He saw numberless stars hidden from the naked eye in the constellations and the Milky Way. Above all, he discovered four new 'planets', the satellites of Jupiter that he called (in honor of his patrons at Florence) the Medicean stars. Thus Galileo initiated modern observational astronomy and announced himself as a Copernican" (PMM, 113).Wing, G291 (with the comma in line 3 of the title); Cinti, 128; Riccardi, I, col. 508; Sotheran, I p. 73 (1448).

Dialogo . Dove ne i congressi di: GALILEI, Galileo

Descripción: 'In Fiorenza' [actually Naples, no printer], 1710, 1710. 4to (276 x 200 mm), pp [xii] 458 [30, index]; [ii] 83 [recte 81] [1, blank], title in red and black and with engraved vignette with the device and motto of the Accademia della Crusca, sectional title for second part, numerous woodcut diagrams in text; title a bit dustsoiled, a few occasional minor marginal stains, a very good copy in contemporary vellum. £12,500Unrecorded large-paper copy of the second vernacular edition of Galileo's celebrated Dialogo. This is an important edition as it contains an assembly of texts (see below) including the first Italian printing of Galileo's Letter to the Grand Duchess Christina, which had been published in Strasbourg in 1636; this is Galileo's famous defence of the independence of science from religion. There is also a reprint of Paolo Foscarini's Lettera . sopra l'opinione de' Pittagorici, e del Copernico. Della mobilita de la terra, e stabilita del sole, e del nuovo Pittagorico sistema del mondo (Naples, 1615), the first Italian work to openly advocate the Copernican theory. This work was condemned by the Inquisition, the printer imprisoned, and all known copies confiscated and burned, in 1616. Further, the teaching by Galileo and others of Copernicanism was condemned, and Copernicus' De revolutionibus was put on the Index. The 1616 Inquisition edict was invoked when Galileo published the Dialogo in 1632. Two further texts are included in this edition, an excerpt from Kepler's preface to the Astronomia nova (1609), and the Inquisition's sentence against Galileo and his abjuration.The Dialogo, which was put on the Index, was omitted from the Opere which appeared in Bologna 1655-6, and also from the Florence 1718 edition of the works. The present printing was unlicensed (hence the false imprint and anonymous printer).This edition was edited by Lorenzo Ciccarelli, under the pseudonym of 'Cellenio Zacclori', and dedicated to Duke Carlo Caraffa-Pacececco. It includes several important and generally unavailable (and at the time prohibited) texts that were not present in the first edition of 1632. These are Galileo, Lettera . scritta alla granduchessa di Toscana, first printed in 1636 (pp 1-35 of the second group of pages); Paolo Antonio Foscarini, Lettera . sopra l'opinione de' Pittagorici, e del Copernico, first printed in 1615 (pp 36-68); followed by Johannes Kepler, 'Perioche ex Introductione in Martem' (pp 69-74); 'Excerptum ex Didaci. Stunica Salmanticensis commentariis in Job, editiones Tolotanae, ap. Joannem Rodricum, Anno 1584 .' (pp 74-76); 'Sententia Cardinalium In Galilaeum et abjuratio eiusdem, excerptae ex J. B. Riccioli Almagesto Novo' (pp 76-80; and 'Abjuratio Galilaei' (pp 80-81). This section was also published separately, from the same type setting (Carli and Favaro 414).The Dialogo is a page-for-page reprint of the first.This is an apparently unknown large-paper issue of the 1710 Dialogo. The copy is some 40 mm higher and 30 mm wider than normal, and the text block is almost twice as thick as the ordinary issue. Carli and Favaro 413; Cinti 168. Nº de ref. de la librería 3533

Descripción: Padua, Paolo Frambotti, 1649, 1649. 4to (235 x 172 mm), pp [viii] 80, with large folding engraved plate and several geometrical diagrams in text; a fine, crisp, unpressed, and uncut copy in contemporary carta rustica. £8500A superlative copy of the scarce third edition of Le Operazioni del Compasso Geometrico, containing an enlarged illustration of Galileo's sector for measuring and swiftly computing distances and mathematical problems. The original edition, published in 1606 and Galileo's first printed book of significance, did not contain an illustration of his 'proportional compass', probably because of the likelihood that it would be pirated.About 1596 Galileo invented a remarkably useful instrument, the geometrical and military compass. The device, a sort of primitive analogue computer, bears nine sets of lines or scales for calculating cube roots, square roots, interest rates, circle squaring, etc. Its object was to greatly reduce computations in the measurement of distance, as well as to extract roots and perform other mathematical functions 'on the fly'. It required three fundamental operations: setting the separation of the arms; taking the distance from the pivot to a point along one of its scales; and taking the crosswise distance between a point and the corresponding point on the other arm.Galileo envisaged his instrument as of use in both civil surveying and military fortification, and it was deliberately published in the Tuscan vernacular for the benefit of both audiences. The sector was particularly useful in 'measurement by sight' applications (described on pp 62-80), allowing the user to compute heights and distances on the same instrument he used to sight them with. 'One of the immediate consequences was that topographical surveying and mapping of terrain became possible for anyone interested, no longer requiring trained specialists' (Drake).The instrument proved to be much in demand, and the inventor established a workshop in his own house at Padova for its manufacture. As is well documented, the 'compass' was copied and plagiarized by others, notably one Baldassare Capra, and in 1606 Galileo published Le Operazioni del Compasso to vindicate his claim to the invention by describing its construction and use. This was his first significant work to appear in print and is very rare. Only 60 copies of this first edition were printed and probably only a dozen or so have survived.It should be noted that Galileo's 'compass', now called the sector, has been manufactured from Galileo's day right up to the present time. No previously known device had accomplished anything quite like it, although mechanical aids to calculation had appeared earlier in various forms. Something of the importance to society of such an invention as Galileo's, noted Stillman Drake, can be grasped from the modern introduction of the pocket electronic computer. It completely revolutionized the way people, from princes to land surveyors, calculated complex mathematical problems without pencil and paper and, in so doing, democratized practical mathematics.Riccardi's editions of 1619 and 1641 would appear to be ghosts; I cannot find any other record of them. Cinti states that the plate mark in the 1640 second edition, the first appearance of the illustration, measured 119 x 345 cm to the plate mark, but I can find no evidence of this. It is probably a setting error, because the true dimensions should be 228/9 x 340 mm according to copies I have checked. The plate mark in the 1649 edition measures ca 25 x 36.3 cm so the two are clearly different, unless the original plate had been cut. Also Cinti mentions a 'n.1' engraved in the margin, but the plate in this copy is not numbered. Carli and Favaro 228; Cinti 122; Tomash and Williams G13; cf also Drake's translation with foreword and notes (Smithsonian Institution Press, 1978). Nº de ref. de la librería 3771

Descripción: Lyons: Jean-Antoine Huguetan the elder, 1641. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. 2nd Edition. Scarce second Latin edition of Galileo's revolutionary "Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems," published one year before Galileo's death. Any of Galileo's publications appearing during his lifetime have a special significance. Two important appendices by Kepler and Foscarini on the conflict between science and the bible were added for the Latin edition. Foscarini's Lettera was condemned by the Inquisition, the printer imprisoned, and all known copies confiscated and burned in 1616. It was the first Italian work to openly advocate the Copernican theory. A milestone of of modern science. The Dialogo presents the summation of Galileo's astronomical thought, and his controversial support of the Copernican view of the solar system based on observed fact instead of scripture. A turning point in the history of human intelligence, a pivot that continues to this day. Quarto, textblock measures 23 cm by 18 cm, (very large, possibly untrimmed example, rare thus). Later 17th century limp vellum with manuscript title to spine. [16], 377, [23] pages. Collated and COMPLETE. Extra engraved title page. full page engraved portrait of Galileo. Housed in a custom-made collector's slipcase. Galileo's historic formulation of the scientific method owes much to his background in music. His father, a tuner of musical instruments, taught Galileo that the key to tuning an instrument was listening to the sounds made by the instrument, not looking in a book about music. Galileo applied the same principle to observing the skies with the newly discovered telescope, and determined that Copernicus's theory of the earth moving around the sun was supported by the evidence. Modern science was born, out of music. Nº de ref. de la librería 1507103

Enodatio Problematum universis geometris Propositorum [¿] Praemissis, horum occasione, Tentamentis Variis ad Solutionem illustris veterum Problematis De Anguli Trisectione. Florence, Gugliantini, 1677. [2] ff, (6), 63 pp., 4 folding engraved plates. With presentation inscription to verso of half-title of first work signed by Viviani. Bound in contemporary calf with spine in six compartments. A wonderfully fresh copy, light toning and foxing to one or two leaves, otherwise excellent. First complete edition (second; first 1674, see below) of this important Galileianum, an assembly of previously unpublished writings by Galileo, together with texts by Torricelli and Viviani himself, inscribed by Viviani to an unknown (scored) receipient. Vincenzo Viviani resided with Galileo at Arectri from October 1639 as his pupil, amanuensis, and assistant, and together with Torricelli, spent the last months of Galileo¿s life with him recording the master¿s final meditations on the relationship between mathematics and physics. The first chapter of this work, a dialogue entitled ¿Quinto Libro degli Elementi d¿Euclide. spiegata colla Dottrina del Galileo¿ was dictated by Galileo to Torricelli in November 1641. (Galileo died January 9, 1642.) Though on his deathbed, it was to be the beginning of still another book continuing the discussion between his three old interlocutors from the Two New Sciences. In this dialogue, printed here and edited from a manuscript given to Viviani by Cardinal De¿ Medici, Galileo reflects upon two definitions found in Euclid¿s Elements, ¿same ratio¿ and ¿compound ratio,¿ which were ¿the two most important keys taken from antiquity in creating Galileo¿s mathematical physics, so that his exposition of them as the last act of his scientific career reflected his earliest scientific steps at Pisa and Padua. Like the Leaning Tower affair, this dialogue linked his last days with his first; Galileo had come full circle¿ (Drake, p. 421). As a young man, Galileo was profoundly influenced by the Elements, especially Books Five and Six which contained the Eudoxian theory of proportion. ¿The importance of the Eudoxian proportion theory to Galileo¿s science cannot be exaggerated. Until the application of algebra to the general solution of geometrical (as well as arithmetical) problems, not achieved until after Galileo¿s work was completed, rigorous connection of mathematics with physical events was possible only through some theory of proportionality. Eudoxian theory establishing proportionality between continuous magnitudes was essential to any great advance over medieval physics¿ (Drake, p. 4). Viviani ¿with the rigor and prolixity of the ancients¿devoted an appendix to geometric problems, among which was one on the trisection of an angle, solved by the use of the cylindrical spiral or of a cycloid; another was the problem of duplicating the cube, solved by means of conics or of the cubic xy2 =k¿ (DSB). .

Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems;: Johannes Kepler] GALILEI,

Descripción: Apud Fredericum Haaring, et Davidem Severinum Bibliopolas [through 1700], Lugduni Batavorum [Leiden], 1699. Vellum. Estado de conservación: Very Good. Two volumes in one. 4to: [16],494,[26]; [6],282(misprinted 826),[4], with copper-engraved portrait of Galileo, additional engraved title page (after Stefano della Bella), dated 1700, showing Aristotle, Ptolemy and Copernicus discussing the heliocentric and geocentric models of the solar system, and numerous woodcut illustrations. In addition to Galileo's texts, this edition includes (following conclusion of the Dialogo) the introduction to "Astronomia nova" (pp. 446-454), in which Johannes Kepler argued in favor of heliocentrism based upon his ten-year-long investigation of the motion of Mars; the Latin translation of Paolo Antonio Foscarini's "Epistola R.P.M. Pauli Antonii Foscarini, Carmelitani, circa Pythagoricorum, & Copernici opinionem de mobilitate terræ, et stabilitate solis: et de novo systemate seu consitiutione mundi" (Letter concerning the Opinion of the Pythagoreans and Copernicus about the Mobility of the Earth and Stability of the Sun, and the New Pythagorean System of the World, pp. 455-487), in which Foscarini defends the Copernican theory against charges that it conflicted with Scripture, and "The judgment of the Cardinals against Galileo and his abjuration (pp. 488-494), first printed in Riccioli's "Almagestum," in 1651. Period full vellum over boards, titled in manuscript to spine, edges speckled black, plain period end papers. A handsome, unsophisticated copy, rare in this condition. Vellum soiled and stained, scattered minor foxing, some thumbing to final few leaves, but a tight, clean example. PMM 128 (Dialogo first edition) & 130 (Discorsi). Carli and Favaro 395. Dibner 8 and 141. Norman 858. First Leiden Edition of the Dialogo (Fourth Latin Edition, Fifth Edition overall), bound with the First Latin Edition (third overall) of the Two New Sciences. Galileo's discoveries with the telescope (described in Sidereus nuncius, in 1610), confirmed his belief that the Sun is the center of the solar system and Earth a planet, as Copernicus had argued. But by 1616, the Inquisition had pronounced Copernican theory heretical, and Galileo was admonished not to "hold or defend" it. Then in 1624, Maffeo Cardinal Barberini, friend, admirer, and patron of Galileo for a decade, was named Pope Urban VIII, and granted Galileo permission to write a book about theories of the universe but warned him to treat the Copernican theory only hypothetically. That book, the Dialogo (Dialogue Concerning the Two Chief World Systems, Ptolemaic & Copernican), was first published, in Italian, in 1632. In it, Galileo gathered together all the arguments (mostly based on his own telescopic discoveries) for the Copernican theory and against the traditional geocentric cosmology put forth by Ptolemy and Aristotle. (The Dialogo takes the form of a discussion between a spokesman for Copernicus, one for Ptolemy and Aristotle, and an educated layman for whose support the other two vie.) Reaction against the book was swift. The pope convened a special commission, which recommended that the Inquisition bring a case against Galileo. Galileo confessed to having overstated his case and was condemned to life imprisonment, though he never spent a day in a dungeon; the Dialogo remained on the Inquisition's Index of prohibited books until 1822. The two new sciences with which the second book deals are mechanics and motion (kinematics). Together, they underlie modern physics, and the Two Sciences is considered the "first modern textbook in physics" (Dibner), "not only because it contains the elements of the mathematical treatment of motion, but also because most of the problems that came rather quickly to be seen as problems amenable to physical experiment and mathematical analysis were gathered together with suggestive discussions of their possible solution." (Dictionary of Scientific Biography) Newton claimed he derived the first two laws of motion from this book. N. B.

Descripción: Bologna per gli HH. del Dozza 1655, 1655. First edition printed by Dozza preceeded only by the first printing of 1638. With woodcut title device and numerous woodcut diagrams and illustrations throughout. 4to, original sheets sewn and unbound. [viii], 238 [Tavola, 6] pp. A very clean and very attractive copy, beautifully preserved. FIRST DOZZA PRINTING. Considered to be Galileo's greatest work, and the foundation of modern physics, the DISCORSI E DIMOSTRAZIONI falls into three sections. The first comprises a theoretical investigation of the strength of materials, a subject which he was able to ground in an almost correct mathematical basis. The second is a discussion of various subjects such as motion, infinity, the existence of a vacuum and the weight of air, the cohesion of bodies, and others. The final section is devoted to the science of motion. In his DIALOGO Galileo had treated the subject of motion philosophically; here he provides mathematical underpinnings for his definitions of uniform and accelerated motion. "It was upon his foundations that Huygens, Newton, and others were able to erect the frame of the science of dynamics, and to extend its range (with the concept of universal gravitation) to the heavenly bodies" (PMM). "After Galileo's trial and conviction by the Holy Office in 1633, he was placed under house arrest, and the Congregation of the Index forbade the printing of any of his books. To add to his woes, he was rapidly losing his sight, and the death of his beloved elder daughter in 1634 left him seriously depressed. Nevertheless, Galileo persevered with the Discorsi, and by 1635 had virtually completed the work. A manuscript copy was smuggled into France and later taken to Holland, where the Elzeviers in Leiden undertook its publication" (Norman). "Considered the first modern textbook in physics, in it Galileo pressed forward the experimental and mathematical methods in the analysis of problems in mechanics and dynamics. The Aristotelian conception of motion was replaced by a new one of inertia and general principles were sought and found in the motion of falling bodies, projectiles, and in the pendulum" (Dibner).

Descripción: Giunti. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: New. Special Order. Please allow 2 to 4 weeks for delivery. ; New; 20 volumes in 21 tomes (size 215 x 295 mm) printed on handmade paper for a total of 11.500 pages, with numerous illustrations, facsimiles and plates. The edition isin half-leather binding. THE EXTRAORDINARY adventure which has freed man from the 'closed world', projecting him into the incommensurable spaces of the `infinite universe' has certainly had Galileo Galilei among its most outstanding protagonists. The National Edition of his works represents a veritable monument to the genius and to the singular tenacity of the scientist. The 11.500 pages contain not only all that Galileo wrote but also all the documents useful to perfectly understand the often dramatic events of a life entirely devoted to the intellectual and moral progress of humanity. In these works Galileo, one of the classics of Italian literature, offers the reader splendidly written pages. His crisp, fluent, lively prose, proves to be an invaluable instrument to express the most complex thoughts with extraordinary naturalness, as well as an unequalled masterpiece of scientific language. The National Edition originated from an initiative of the glorious publishing house Barbera and was entrusted to the care of the great Galileo scholar Antonio Favaro. As such, it gathers in orderly arrangement the published and unpublished writings of the scientist from Pisa, including the whole bulk of his correspondence and the participation of supporters and detractors in the debate provoked by the new discoveries in astronomy. It also includes the most accurate and precious reproduction of Galileo's star charts, of the drawings and sketches employed by him in order to clarify graphically his own thought, and finally the biographical accounts by his contemporaries. The volumes are complemented by an extensive critical and philological apparatus. Nº de ref. de la librería 44570

Qualche segno d'uso esterno ed una fenditura al dorso, peraltro ben conservato. Questo celebre libro di formato minuscolo si dichiara essere il più piccolo mai stampato con caratteri mobili.

Welsh, A bibliography of miniature books, 2935; Fumagalli (Lexicon a pag. 276): ".Les frères Salmin publièrent en 1897 une Lettera a Galileo. qui est, peut-etre, le plus petit livre du monde, veritable.".
