Descripción:

First comlete English translation of Dissertatio cum Nuncio sidereo (1st Latin ed., 1610). xix, 164 pp. Original cloth. Near Fine, in near fine dust jacket. The Sources of Science, No. 5. "On 8 April 1610 Kepler received a copy of Galileo's Sidereus nuncius, and a few days later the Tuscan ambassador in Prague transmitted Galileo's request for an opinion about the startling new telescopic discoveries. What a contrast with 1597, when Kepler, an unknow high-school teacher, had sought in vain Galileo's reaction to his own book! Kepler was now the distinguished imperial mathematician, whose opinion mattered; he responded generously and quickly with a long letter of approval. He promptly published his letter as Dissertatio cum Nuncio sidereo; in accepting the new observations with enthusiasm, he also reminded his readers of the earlier history of the telescope, his own work on optics, his ideas on the regular solids and on possible inhabitants of the moon, and his arguments against an infinite universe. A few months later, in the second of the only three known letters that Galileo wrote directly to Kepler, the Italian astronomer stated, 'I thank you because you were the first one, and practically the only one, to have complete faith in my assertions' . The chief English trans. are . Edward Rosen, Kepler's Converation with Galileo's Sidereal Messenger (New York, 1965)" (Owen Gingerich in D. S. B. VII: 299, 309). N° de ref. de la librería
