A few marginal paper flaws. Front joint starting. Bookplate of Albert May Todd, an internationally known book collector and benefactor of the Todd Rare Book Room at Kalamazoo College, Michigan, on the front pastedown (along with one other armorial bookplate). An excellent and very tall copy, with many of the leaves uncut. Housed in a custom quarter red morocco clamshell, gilt-stamped. "Eight years after Pope Paul V had forbidden him to teach Copernican theory, Galileo received permission from a new Pope, Urban VIII, to discuss Copernican astronomy in a book, so long as that book provided equal and impartial discussions of the Church-approved Ptolemaic system. Galileo’s Dialogue concerning the two chief world systems held to the letter of this command: the device of the dialogue, between a spokesman for Copernicus, one for Ptolemy and Aristotle, and an educated layman, allowed Galileo to remain technically uncommitted. After the book’s publication, however, Urban took offense at what he felt to be its jibes against himself and ordered Galileo to brought before the Inquisition in Rome. Galileo was condemned to permanent house arrest and forced to abjure all Copernican ‘heresy’" (Norman Library). "If it was not exactly written in defiance of the Inquisition, it was composed with the deliberate intention of bamboozling the censors and of outwitting Galileo’s clerical enemies. The censors were the more easy to deceive; after the book was published Galileo’s enemies dragged him to Rome in 1633, set him before the Inquisition, and forced him to abjure all that the Dialogo professed.The book itself remained on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum until 1823.In 1615 [Galileo] was officially silenced as regards the truth of astronomy. 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. 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. Astronomy and the science of motion, rightly understood, says Galileo, are hand in glove. There is no need to fear that the earth’s rotation will cause it to fly to pieces.The Dialogo, far more than any other work, made the heliocentric system a commonplace" (Printing and the Mind of Man).

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: 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: Rome: Giacomo Mascardi, 1623., 1623. Small quarto (7 6/8 x 5 7/8 inches). 16 lines of errata on page 236. Engraved title-page and portrait of Galileo by Francesco Villamena, fine engraved diagrams in the text, (first few leaves a bit loose and with minor pale dampstain, some light spotting). Contemporary half vellum, patterned paper boards, title lettered in gilt on the spine (rubbed with minor loss to patterned paper, one or two pale stains). Provenance: With the ownership inscription of Alessandro Maggiori (1764 - 1834), celebrated artist, collector and antiquary, dated 1789 on the front free endpaper. THE EARLIEST PUBLISHED ILLUSTRATION OF THE RING OF SATURN, THE PLANET MARS IN INFERIOR AND SUPERIOR CONJUNCTION, AND THE PHASES OF VENUS First edition, first issue, on thicker paper with the short list of errata, one of fewer than 400 copies, this copy without the four preliminary leaves (signature a4) containing commendatory verses by Johannes Faber and Francesco Stelluti. With the last minute dedication to the new Pope Urban VIII, Maffeo Barberini, Galileo's friend and a patron of science and the arts. An attractive copy of one of the most celebrated polemics in science, by the most renowned and controversial scientist of his time. Ostensibly written in response to Orazio Grassi (1583-1654) who had published in 1619, under the pseudonym Lotario Sarsi (an anagram of his name) "Libra astronomica et philosophica", an attack on Galileo and his ideas of comets. Galileo's opinions were not only closely scrutinized by his peers, but also by the Church, who as early as 1611 had questioned Galileo for holding the Copernican view that the Sun, not the earth is the centre of the universe; a position which the church declared to be absurd in philosophy, at least erroneous in theology, and formally a heresy in 1616. On orders of the Pope Paul V, Cardinal Bellarmine warned Galileo to not to hold or defend the Copernican theory and Galileo was expressly forbidden to discuss the theory orally or in writing. As a result "Il saggiatore." is an ingenious general discussion of the proper scientific approach to the investigation of celestial phenomena. At the centre of his argument is the idea that no theory of comets can be advanced unless it can be proven that they are concrete moving objects rather than mere optical effects of solar light, a proof which, incidentally, he considered impossible. In discussing his new scientific approach Galileo set forth some fundamental axioms of the modern scientific method: he "distinguished physical properties of objects from their sensory effects, repudiated authority in any matter that was subject to direct investigation, and remarked that the book of nature, being written in mathematical characters, could be deciphered only by those who knew mathematics" (DSB). From the distinguished library of celebrated 18th-century artist, collector and critic Count Allessandro Maggiori, whose collection of old master drawings fromed the basis of the Vanderbilt collection now housed at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. inscribed by him on the front paste-down: "Di' Allessandro Maggiori il quale le compio a Livorno nel 1789".

Descripción: Bologna Eredi Dozza 1656-55, 1656. 2 volumes. Rare First Edition and first printing of the works of Galileo including many pieces heretofore unpublished in any form. With a very finely engraved frontispiece and engraved portrait of Galileo, engraved folding plan, many woodcut plates, astronomical renderings, mathematical tables and diagrams throughout. 4to, in very handsome antique Italian bindings of three-quarter dark calf over Italian marbled boards, the spines with beautifully tooled compartments in gilt, contrasting red and green morocco lettering labels gilt stopped and with gilt rolled borders. Multiple books and publications separately paginated A especially handsome set. Clean, unpressed, unwashed copies in a fine state of preservation. An unusually fine set. THE RARE FIRST EDITION OF GALILEO’S COMPLETE WORKS (excepting the DIALOGO, which was still on the Index of Prohibited Books at the time), preserving a record of some of the most seminal discoveries in astronomy, scientific methodology, mathematics, primary work in the study of motion, as well as the most significant support of the Copernican theory of a heliocentric planetary system--in other words, the embodiment of the "Galilean Revolution." "Galileo, more than any other man, had introduced the change in our manner of thinking that broke with ancient and led on to modern science. Contributions had also been made by Copernicus, by Vesalius, by Harvey, by Tycho, and by Kepler and others. The share of Galileo, however, is overwhelming.[It] was more than an addition to knowledge. It was more even than an alteration in the conception of the structure of the universe. It was rather a change in mood as to the kind of knowledge that was to be sought. It partook of the nature of a philosophical crisis" (Singer, A HISTORY OF SCIENTIFIC IDEAS, p. 249). The influence of the new mood affected ideas regarding the mechanical world, the extension of the senses, the idea of the universe as mathematical and boundless, and indeed altered the whole world of science and religion.

Petit in-8 de 11 ff.n.ch., 256 pp.ch., 1 planche dépliante (les deux ff. blancs précédant la préface ont été supprimés par le relieur) ; vélin, dos muet, restes d'attaches (reliure de l'époque). Cinti, 104 ; Horblit, 427 ; Riccardi, I, 515 ; Sotheran, I, p. 419, n° 8224 : "Very rare" ; DSB, IX, 316-322 (Mersenne) ; pour l'édition italienne, voir : Cinti, 102 ; Horblit, 36 ; Dibner, 141. Édition originale française, d'une grande rareté. Il s'agit de la transposition, ou plutôt de l'adaptation par le Père Marin Mersenne (1588-1648) des Discorsi e dimostrazioni Matematiche intorno a due nuove scienze publiés à Leyde en 1638, mais dont le savant français avait consulté un manuscrit avant la parution. Dans ce livre capital, l'un des ouvrages fondateurs de la physique moderne, Galilée exposait ses conceptions nouvelles sur l'équilibre des forces, la résistance des matériaux, les différentes sortes de mouvement et les paraboles des projectiles. Le Père Mersenne, qui fut l'introducteur et le propagateur des théories de Galilée en France, a mêlé ses propres réflexions – sur l'acoustique et le pendule notamment – à celles du grand savant italien, ce qui fait de cette version des Discorsi un ouvrage entièrement nouveau qui prolonge les recherches entamées par Mersenne avec le Traité de l'harmonie universelle (1627), les Questions harmoniques (1634) et Les Préludes de l'harmonie universelle (1634). "Before the final sections of Harmonie universelle were in print, he read in Paris, in the winter of 1636-1637, a manuscript of the first day of Galileo's Discorsi (1638) containing an account of conclusions about acoustics and the pendulum similar to his own. Mersenne's next work on these subjects was his French summary and critical discussion of Galileo's book in Les Nouvelles pensées de Galilée" (DSB). Le volume est orné d'une planche dépliante et de quelques bois gravés dans le texte. Très bon exemplaire ; notes marginales à l'encre, quelques taches sans gravité, planche dépliante un peu effrangée, reliure légèrement usée. Nº de ref. de la librería 13843

Descripción: Stamp. Camerali, Ravenna, 1649. Rare first edition in the original Italian of Galileo’s early treatise on mechanics, a precursor to the research that he would present in his Discorsi. This popular treatise, widely circulated in manuscript form, is effectively a "bridge between statics and dynamics," and according to Drake, "far superior to other available works on the subject" (Galileo on Motion and Mechanics, p. 137). "Galileo presents the analysis of simple machines in an unusual way. He is justly celebrated in this tract for his use and explication of the principle of virtual velocities" (Clagett in Drake, viii). Incorporating elements from Aristotle, Archimedes, Pappus, Philoponus, Jordanus and others, Della Scienza Mecanica offers "a coherent and illuminating exposition of the foundations of mechanics." Drake explains that while little of the content of Della Scienza Mecanica found its way into the Discorsi (with the exception of a discussion of the lever, Galileo omitted the time-honored topic of simple machines, choosing to emphasize his newer findings on dynamics), the Scienza shows "unmistakable novelty," and represents an important stepping stone in Galileo’s intellectual development; early investigations into conservation of energy and the principle of inertia can be traced here. Della Scienza Mecanica is based on a series of lectures on aspects of statics and of simple machines delivered by Galileo for his pupils at Padua in the 1590s. In Drake’s estimation, the text was most unlikely to have been revised after 1608, and thus "its essential content may be considered to have followed very shortly after the composition of De Motu" (ibid p. 137). The work remained unpublished until Marin Mersenne produced a French-language paraphrase of the original manuscript in Paris in 1634, Les Méchaniques de Galilée. Shortly thereafter, in 1636, Robert Payne worked from a manuscript copy to translate the Scienza into English, but this was never published; Thomas Salusbury published a new translation in 1665 in his Mathematical Collections and Translations. Luca Danesi was the first to prepare the original Italian text for publication, and his edition of the Scienza would be included in all subsequent collections of Galileo’s works (the Bolognese Dozza Opere of 1655, etc.). Danesi (1598-1672) was variously an architect, engineer, writer, lawyer, and mathematician. He designed the churches of S. Romualdo in Ravenna and S. Marie dei Teatini in Ferrara, both dating from c. 1630. The "Trattato di mecaniche" was reprinted as a separately paginated section at the end of Danesi’s Opere (Ferrara, Bolzoni, 1670), which also includes a tract on practical geometry and one on bridges, as well as an analysis of the Tiber River floods. OCLC lists CalTech, Iowa, and l’Institut de France. A sole copy of Danesi’s 1670 Opera is listed at CalTech.

A fine copy, collated complete. --- Honeyman IV 1409; Horblit 18c, Dibner 8; Carli-Favaro 32 (148); Caspar 11 (88); Cinti 196 (96); Riccardi I 512. - First Latin and first international edition of Galileo's enormously influential Dialogo demonstrating the validity of the Copernican heliocentric theory over the Ptolemaic theory of the solar system. It was the only major work of Galileo published outside Italy during his lifetime and made a huge impact outside professional scientific circles. If ordinary educated non-Italians read no other Galileo, they read this edition of this text. This edition also influenced generations of scientists outside Italy, among them Mersenne and Gassendi in France, Kepler in Germany and Wilkins and Wallis in England. Galileo's Dialogo is the summation of his ideas, presented in a didactic dialogue. It is a philosophical debate that takes place over four days between three speakers, Salviati (ie. Galileo), Sagredo and Simplicio (both Simplicius the commentator on Aristotle, and 'simplicio' ie. simple or naïve). Salivati puts forward the case for the heliocentric Copernican system and Simplicio puts forward the Aristotelian view. Sagrado, a Venetian nobleman, is the layman who is willing to learn from the other two (but who always agrees with Salivati in the end). The first day is concerned with the principles of motion, which in the second day is extended to include the earth's motion on a daily basis and the principle of relativity in observed motion. The third day treats of the sun's annual motion around the earth, which contains some pro-Copernican arguments, and the fourth gives us Galileo's idea that the ebb and flow of tides is due to the motion of the earth. The text closes with the editio princeps of Kepler's 'Perioche' and a long letter of Foscarini on the opinions of Pittagorichi and Copernicus.' The Dialogue has been described as "the story of the mind of Galileo." The book reveals Galileo as physicist and astronomer, sophisticate and sophist, polemicist and polished writer. Unlike the works of Copernicus and Kepler, the 'Dialogue' was a book for the educated public not just specialists, hence this edition's huge importance. In 1616 the Vatican declared the theories of Copernicus to be "foolish and absurd" and "formally heretical." De Revolutionibus was not banned but changes had to be made to the text, notably the removal of references to the compatibility of the ideas of Copernicus with scripture. Galileo was warned by the Pope not to continue defending the views of Copernicus, to which he acquiesced. In 1623 Maffeo Barberini became Pope. He had written a poem in praise of Galileo's telescopic discoveries and Galileo felt he might now be more receptive to his ideas. Galileo presented a copy of his Il Saggiatore to the Pope in which he ridiculed the Aristotelian views of Horatio Grassi and argued that scientific investigation should not be hindered by reliance on authority. The Pope enjoyed the book and this emboldened Galileo to ask for permission to publish his theories about tides. The Pope agreed on certain conditions. First, no mention was to be made to tides in the title as this would give too much prominence to a phenomenum which was used as evidence that the Earth moved. Second, Galileo was to state that this was only one of the ways in which the tides could have been created. The 'Dialogo' was the result. Nº de ref. de la librería 001634

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 4 centimetres higher and 3 centimetres wider than normal, and the text block is almost twice as thick as the ordinary issue. Carli and Favaro 413; Cinti 168.

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

Descripción: typis Jacobi Flesher, 1653. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Fine. Octavo: 18 x 11.5 cm. [16], 199, [1]; 173, [1] p., 4 leaves of plates : ill., diagrams (woodcuts). Collation: A-N8, O4; A-L8 (lacking final blank) 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," has been called the first modern astronomy textbook. It is divided into three sections: the first details 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 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 and Dibner, Heralds of Science, #7 (the 1610 edition) Bound in contemporary paneled calf, ruled in blind, with small floral tools at the corners. The spine is ornately tooled in gold with a pretty thistle tool. There is a red morocco label, gilt, in the 2nd compartment. The binding is in excellent condition, the front hinge expertly mended. Internally, the contents are also in excellent condition and the impressions of the four star charts are sharp and black. The first title page is printed in red and black. There are several neat 18th c. notes in the margins of the first work, and the notice 'ad sextam editionem correcta' Cantab. 1702' on the title page. With an additional title page at leaf A2r: "Institutio astronomica juxta hypotheseis tam veterum, quam Copernici, et Tychonis". Galileo's "Sidereus nuncius" and Kepler's "Dioptrice" are introduced by separate title pages. 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.).

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, p. 10)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 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. The next stag 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: Florence: Cosimo Giunta, 1615. Hardcover. Estado de conservación: Very Good. 1st Edition. 4to, [4],3666,5]pp. Last two leaves (errata and register) in expert facsimile. Later full calf with red morocco label. First edition of Galileo's principal text on the controversy over floating bodies. Like several of his polemics of this period, it appeared under the name of a colleague, in this case his pupil and friend Castelli. This work was written as a reply to two attacks by Colombe and Grazia on Galileo's 1612 treatise on floating bodies. Using the concept of moment and the principle of virtual velocities, Galileo extended the scope of Archimedean work beyond purely hydrostatic considerations. His position involved philosophical principles, and was regarded as a challenge to the authority of Aristotle. Galileo in the present reply to his academic critics enlarged both the scientific reasoning behind his position and presented a vigorous philosophical defense of his position. In the section replying to Grazia, Galileo states that he made use of two basic principles: that equal weights moved with equal speed are of like power in their effects, and that greater heaviness of one body could be offset by greater speed of another. The last two leaves completing the errata and giving the registration (here in facsimile) are not found with most copies as recorded by Cinti. Cinti 5; Carli and Favaro 66; Riccardi I-289. Very rare.

In all, an attractive, clean and wide-margined example of this scarce and important edition of one of the milestones of science. ---- Carli 413; Cinti 168; Gamba 476; Riccardi I, 512; Rocco di Torrepadula, Bibl. Galileiana,168; Waller, Bib. Walleriana, 12044; cf. Printing and the Mind of Man 128 (1st edition). The beautifully printed Second Edition of the original Italian text of GALILEO'S CELEBRATED "DIALOGUE CONCERNING THE TWO CHIEF WORLD SYSTEMS." A LANDMARK OF SCIENCE: THE SUMMATION OF GALILEO'S IDEAS, AND HIS CELEBRATED DEFENSE OF THE COPERNICAN VIEW OF THE SOLAR SYSTEM! This is the book that, "more than any other work, made the heliocentric system a commonplace." (PMM). The first edition was placed on the Index of Forbidden Books immediately after publication in 1632. No subsequent Italian edition followed until this 1710 edition, published clandestinely in Naples. The printing was unlicensed (hence the false imprint and anonymous printer). The banned Dialogo was omitted from both the first and the second collected editions of Galileo's works in Italian (Opere), which appeared in Bologna in 1655-6, and Florence in 1718, respectively. This 1710 edition of the Dialogo is particularly important as it contains a valuable collection of additional texts including the first Italian printing of Galileo's famous Letter to the Grand Duchess of Tuscany, Christina of Lorraine (with a separate title page and separate pagination). It was written in 1615, but, due to the Inquisition's condemnation of Galileo, remained unpublished (circulating in manuscript only) until much later. Prior to this 1710 Naples printing it appeared only once: in Strasbourg in 1636 (with the Italian text parallel with a Latin translation). The letter contains Galileo's influential argument for the biblical orthodoxy of Copernicanism and his defense of the independence of science from religion. Also included in this edition is 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, first printed in Naples in 1615. This was the first Italian work to openly advocate the Copernican theory. The Foscarini's Lettera was condemned by the Inquisition, the printer imprisoned, and all known copies confiscated and burned, in 1616. The 1616 Inquisition edict was invoked when Galileo published the Dialogo in 1632. The further texts included in this edition are an excerpt from Kepler's preface to his Astronomia nova (1609), as well as the Inquisition's sentence against Galileo and his.

Provenance: Sir William Dawes, Bt (1671-1724, chaplain in ordinary to King William III and Queen Anne, and Archbishop of York, bookplate on verso of title dated 1704). A fine copy with ample margins. ---- Carli and Favaro 180; Cinti 109; Riccardi I, 1, 512, no. 10, 5. - Second Latin edition of the Dialogo, the summation of Galileo's astronomical work, and his celebrated advancement of the Copernican system in the form of an irrefutable hypothesis. The inconclusive debate on the subject between three participants which Pope Urban VIII had expected was hardly evident in the sure reasoning of Salviati, the pointed questioning of Sagredo, and the feeble responses of Simplicio (a figure sometimes equated with the Pope himself). While the hypothetical nature of the argument should not be forgotten, Galileo's book '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). The Italian first edition (Florence: 1632) was banned by the Pope and withdrawn from circulation shortly after publication, leading to the author's trial and imprisonment a year later; it was followed by the first Latin edition, published in Strasbourg in 1635, which was translated by the history professor and mathematics enthusiast Matthias Bernegger at Galileo's request. Two important appendices by Kepler and Foscarini concerning the debate over the compatibility of the theory of the earth's movement with Scripture were also added to Galileo's text by Bernegger.

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). .

Praemissis, horum occasione, tentamentis variis ad solutionem ilustriss veterum problematis de anguli trisectioni. Florence, Gugliantini, 1677.2 works in one vol, 4to (232 x 166 mm), I: pp [xii] 284; with two engraved plates and woodcut diagrams in text; II: [viii] 63, with four folding engraved plates; slight browning to a few leaves, fine copies in contemporary calf £6000I. First edition, second and first complete issue (see below) of this major Galilean text, an assembly of previously unpublished writings by Galileo, together with pieces by Torricelli and Viviani himself. Viviani (1622-1703), Galileo's distinguished pupil, amanuensis, and biographer, was given by Cardinal de' Medici a fragment of Galileo manuscript demonstrating the fifth and seventh propositions of Euclid, book V, both concerned with size and proportionality. This fragment is published here (pp 61-78) together with other writings of Galileo (pp 79-113), Viviani's own completion of Galileo's demonstration (pp. 1-60), writings by Torricelli, and fragments of an unpublished dialogue by Galileo.Viviani himself, '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).There are two recorded issues of this work; the present copy is intermediate between these two. The first edition appeared in 1674, with text paginated to 149, followed by three unnumbered pages of addenda and privilege; the work was reissued in 1676, with a further section written in answer to questions posed by a Leiden student in 1675, the two plates, and the dedication dated 16 May 1676, although the titlepage date remained 1674. See Gamba 1048 (résumé in Riccardi).II. First edition of this treatise on the problem of trisecting an angle.

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 universe 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.
