With numerous xylographic illustrations among the text. Third, important edition of Galileo's works, edited by the astronomer Giuseppe Toaldo. This is the first time that the "Dialogo dei massimi sistemi" appears in a collection of Galileo's works (it is to remember that the Dialogo was included in the "Indice dei libri proibiti" of the Catholic Church until 1835).

Ex-libris marchesi Corsi. Nice copy, with only two little worm damages to the leather of one of the volumes. Bookseller Inventory # LD/141365

Item Description: Milano Dalla Società Tipografica de’Classici Italiani 1808, 1808. 13 volumes. Rare first printing of the OPERE in octavo format and a superb and diligent accumulation of the older editions. With a very finely engraved frontispiece of Galileo at the beginning of Volume I, engraved folding plans, folding plate of the compass, many woodcut plates, astronomical renderings, mathematical tables and diagrams throughout. 8vo, [140mm x 220 mm., untrimmed], in contemporary Italian bindings of fine three-quarter polished calf over marbled boards, handsomely decorated with gilt bands on the spines dark green morocco lettering labels gilt. A very fine set, large and unusually fresh, as pristine. A rare survival in such fine contemporary state, crisp and an especially clean copy throughout, the bindings especially handsome and beautifully preserved. EXTREMELY SCARCE IN SUCH WELL PRESERVED BINDINGS OF THE PERIOD. USUALLY ENCOUNTERED IN VELLUM BINDINGS, THIS RARE EDITION OF GALILEO’S COMPLETE WORKS INCLUDING THE ‘DIALOGO’ preserves 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." This issue of the OPERE, contains all of the important works in science and as well, the Letter to Madame Christina and the Cosidrations of Tasso. Included are the GIORNATA SESTA DEI DISCORSI E DIMOSTRAZIONI.as well as other works such as the LETTERE IN PROPOSITO DI TROVARE LE LONGITUDINI, the NOTE SOPRA IL NUNZIO SIDEREO., the LA OPERAZIONI ASTRONOMICHE and a profusion of other works. Contained in this collection are many of the most important works in the history of science and physics, works that would cost many, many thousands of dollars to collect individually. Some among these are: RISPOSTA ALLE OPPOSITIONI , Galileo’s work on virtual velocity; DISCORSO AL SERENISSIMO DON COSIMO II, on floating bodies and expanding greatly on the work of Archimedes; The DIFESA, his first work of Astronomy; LE OPERATIONI DEL COMPASSO GEOMETRICO, E MILITARE, the seminal work on the compass and it’s use in scientific and military enterprise. In 1610 Galileo published his SIDEREUS NUNCIUS (included here), in which he described the construction of his telescope and his observations using the new instrument. His discoveries did not prove that Copernicus's heliocentric theory was correct, but they did show that geocentric philosophy of Aristotle and the geocentric system proposed by Ptolemy were incorrect, providing strong evidence for the heliocentric theory--an implausible theory which had largely been ignored for sixty years after Copernicus's death. His new support for the Copernican system reopened the controversy, and in 1615 he was officially silenced as regards the truth of astronomy. " 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" (PMM). Galileo pioneered the study of motion and its mathematical analysis, a field which was taken up by Decartes and Huygens and culminated in the "massive achievements of Newton in dynamics and gravitational astronomy". "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 u. Bookseller Inventory # 20326
