About this Item: Padova, per Paolo Frambotto, 1649. Couverture souple. Condition: Bon état. In-8 broché, couverture muette d attente de l époque, titre- 2 ff.- 80 pp. Bandeau, lettrines et culs-de-lampe. Croquis géométriques dans le texte. Planche dépliante hors-texte. Couverture défraîchie, accroc et ternissures. Large humidité en continue des deux derniers cahiers 16 ff. Découpe au titre sans atteinte. En l état. Deuxième édition illustrée de la première oeuvre publiée de Galilée. La première édition, non illustrée - peut-être parce que Galilée a souhaité maintenir son monopole sur la construction de l instrument -, n est parue qu à 60 exemplaires en 1606. La planche gravée in fine représente un compas de proportion, l ancêtre de la règle à calcul. Dans cet ouvrage, Galilée prend le compas de proportion militaire et le développe pour en faire un calculateur à usage plus général, capable de résoudre tout problème de mathématique pratique, sans le besoin d avoir eu une éducation mathématique antérieure, et suffisamment précis pour des fins pratiques ordinaires. in-8°.

About this Item: 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.A 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). Seller Inventory # 3771
