- In Padova, nella stamperia del Seminario, appresso Gio. Manfrè, 1744, voll. 4, in-4, nice XXth century quarter calf binding, 4 raised bands on the spine, gilt title and volume numbers on red leather labels, little gilt Guicciardini arms in the panels of the spine; imitating XVIIIth century decorated paper on the boards, pp. [8], LXXXVIII, [4], 601, [1], with 2 copper-plates (Galileo's portrait, engraved by F.

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). Toaldo edited this edition of the "Dialogo" following Galileo's own private copy, held by the Seminario of Padova's Library. Pages 592-601 of the first volume contain the first printed edition of the "Trattato del modo di misurare con la vista". Riccardi I/1, 522, 22: "risulta molto più completa e ordinata delle due precedenti". Gamba p. 152 n. 484: "Questa edizione fu diretta ed illustrata con note dall'astronomo Giuseppe Toaldo [.] I nuovi Trattati e le note che l'autore della fiorentina edizione non aveva potuto disporre secondo l'ordine delle materie, sono in questa di Padova inseriti al loro posto nei primi tre volumi". Ex-libris marchesi Corsi. Nice copy, with only two little worm damages to the leather of one of the volumes. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
