TARTAGLIA, Niccolò.
London: [by Thomas Dawson] for John Harrison [the elder], 1588. First edition. First edition in English, very rare, of the first three books of Tartaglia's 1546 Quesiti et Inventioni Diverse, dealing with ballistics and expanding and correcting the treatment in his 1537 Nova Scientia, the first systematic treatise on the subject. The appendix of the translator Cyprian Lucar is compiled from writings on gunnery by contemporary authors. "Tartaglia proved both mathematically and experimentally that the trajectory of a missile fired from a cannon was a curved line throughout, thus contradicting the 'impetus' theory derived from Aristotle's Physics, which stated that a projectile's trajectory was described by two straight lines united by a curved line (Tartaglia was the first Renaissance scientist to point out serious flaws in the Physics). Tartaglia demonstrated that from the beginning of its flight, a projectile was affected by gravity, which, along with wind resistance, caused its forward velocity to lessen while increasing the speed of its fall. Tartaglia also observed a relationship between the speed of projection and the speed of fall: the greater the initial speed, the less the gravitational influence. Through experimentation, he determined that the maximum cannon range, at any given initial speed, was obtained with a firing elevation of forty-five degrees" (Norman Catalogue 2053). In fact, in the Nova Scientia Tartaglia argued that the path of a projectile consisted of rectilinear parts at the beginning and end of the trajectory, with a curved part between; it was only i … [Click Below for Full Description]
