SECOND EDITION OF GALILEO'S COLLECTED WORKS, with important additions of the collection which was first published in 1656. This compilation was edited by Tommaso Buonaventuri, who contributed a detailed preface. The first two volumes largely reproduce the material collected by Manolessi in the first edition (still without the two banned works). The third volume is devoted to previously unpublished material, including a number of letters of Galileo, and notes on his work by Castelli and Viviani. The sequence of pagination from p. 369 to 384 occurs twice in vol. I.
