About this Item

First Edition. Contains Facsimile Reprints of two manuscripts: Galileo's letter of 7 Maggio 1610, and Torricelli's Proemio al Trattato 'De Definitionibus Geometricus.' Folio, original wrappers glued inside cardboard folder. Terzo Centenario della Nascita di Evangelista Torricelli MDCVIII-MCMVIII. For Torricelli, see D.S.B. XIII: 433-440. Torricelli only published two books (only one in his lifetime), with part of one reprinted posthumously and the other first published posthumously. His Opere was published in four volumes (Vols. I-III, 1919, Vol. IV, 1944), while the majority of his manuscripts (presumably including the one reprinted in the volume offered here), 'after complicated vicissitudes and some losses, as recounted in the intro. to the Opere, are preserved at the Biblioteca Nazionale Centrale, Florence' (D.S.B. XIII: 439). Bookseller Inventory # D00473
