About this Item: Guiseppe Cocchini, Firenze, 1666. First Edition. Folio (340 x 240mm). [xvi] (half-title, title, dedication leaves), I-CCLXIXpp., [xvi] (table, index and adverts.) Title printed in red and black with engraved title vignette depicting kiln beneath motto "Provando e riprovando" (Trial and error). Copper-engraved armorial headpiece (De Medici) on first page of dedication. Numerous copper-engraved initials and chapter head- and tail-pieces, all historiated with putti, emblematic animals, fantastical beasts, masks and foliage. 74 full-page copper-engraved plates of figures (mostly instruments for the experiments). Later vellum; (light occasional foxing, first few leaves of dedication browned; lightly rubbed). First Edition of the Saggi di naturali esperienze (Essays on Natural Experiments) published in 1666, with the aim of providing a modern tool of consultation. The Saggi di naturali esperienze fatte nell’Accademia del Cimento presents a synthesis of the experimental work carried out by the Accademia del Cimento (Academy of Experiments) for over a ten-year period. Founded by Prince Leopoldo de’ Medici and the Grand-duke Ferdinando II in 1657, the Academy resolved to test a series of principles of natural philosophy which up until then had been commonly accepted solely on the authority of Aristotle. The Academy proposed to follow Galileo’s example, and use only rigorous experimentation as their guide. This lavishly illustrated volume was introduced and edited by the Secretary of the Academy, Lorenzo Magalotti. The Academy met sporadically, and concluded its work in 1667 with this publication of the principal fruits of their experimental labor including, "to determine the changes in the air due to heat and cold," on the "natural pressure of air," on "artificial freezing," on magnets, on the electrical properties of amber, on the propagation of sound and light, and on a host of other natural phenomena. The experimental demonstrations relevant to pneumatics take up more than forty pages of the Saggi di naturali esperienze, while it should be noted that only some of these experiments are absolutely original, while the others replicate experiments either thought up, or performed, by other natural philosophers, like the experiment of smoke in the vacuum. The book encountered notable success. In 1684 the first English translation by Richard Waller was published, and in 1731, the Dutch scientist Petrus van Musschenbroek published an edition in Latin. Especially important among the editions published subsequently was the one edited by V. Antinori, on the occasion of the third congress of Italian scientists, held in Florence in 1841. The Saggi recounted only a small portion of the research conducted by the Cimento, by comparison with the hundreds of experiments recorded in the Academy’s manuscript Diaries. For fear of provoking reactions from the Church authorities, the volume omitted the analysis of the true configuration of Saturn- a sensitive topic, given its major Copernican implications. In excellent condition, plates remain bright the whole with wide margins. Seller Inventory # D4526

About this Item: Florence, Giuseppe Cocchini, 1666 [1667], 1666. Folio (343 x 234 mm), pp. [xvi] 269 [17], with an engraved portrait of Ferdinand II by Franciscus Spierre, title in red and black with engraved device, 75 full-page engraved plates in text, and numerous head and tailpieces, many containing illustrations of apparatus; the two leaves of dedication slightly browned as often, a fine, large copy in a very attractive eighteenth-century Italian cat's-paw mottled sheep binding, spine with gilt floral tools and red morocco label, green silk page marker.First edition, first issue, of one of the classics of experimental science, giving a detailed description of the Torricellian experiments and many others, and important as 'the first report from what we would now call a research laboratory' (Middleton). The Accademia was founded in 1657, five years before the Royal Society of London, by Galileo's most famous pupils, Evangelista Torricelli and Vincenzo Viviani, under the patronage of Ferdinand II de Medici and his brother Prince Leopold, specifically to extend the work of Galileo by making scientific experiments which would demonstrate the folly of continued opposition to the new science. The main experimenters were Borelli, Redi, and Viviani, but other early members included Steno and Cassini. 'They worked together at experimentation of all sorts and eschewed speculative thinking. Together they worked out new research methods, invented new instruments, and devised better standards of measurement . Many regard this collaborative work as the beginning of modern physics' (Leonard Bruno, The tradition of science). The text, which has been much admired for its style, was written over a period of several years by the poet Count Lorenzo Magalotti, secretary to the society. Experiments were conducted on air pressure, the speed of sound, radiant heat, phosphorescence, magnetism, amber and other electric bodies, the compressibility of water and its expansion on freezing, and the discovery of the plane of oscillation of a pendulum.The plates were engraved by Modiana, possibly after drawings by Stefano della Bella. Among the instruments illustrated are the Florentine thermometer and an improved barometer. The Accademia's scientific apparatus is still preserved in the science museum of Florence.Printing began in 1664, but was not completed until October 1667, although a few copies, like the present one, have a title page dated 1666. Copies of the book were not sold through the bookshops, but only sent out as gifts to friends and colleagues of the patrons. 800 copies were printed but Middleton believes the numbers of distributed copies were far fewer, as the printers spoiled many copies.

Knowles Middleton, The experimenters: a study of the Accademia del Cimento, 1971.Provenance: nineteenth-century ex-libris 'Jacobi Cerruti' on front pastedownMiddleton 1; Dibner 82; Riccardi II 407; Norman 485.
