Galileo Studies: Personality, Tradition, and Revolution.
Drake, Stillman.

Ann Arbor: The University of Michigan Press, 1970. First edition Light wear and rubbing to edges of boards and Dj Slight fading along dj's spine. Name of previous owner on front free endpaper. Light foxing to endpapers and more so to page edges. 289 pages with endnotes after each essay/chapter, and index. A work by noted Galileo scholar Stillman Drake that examines "the individuality of Galileo's creative work," rather than exploring within the overall history of science and technology. Drake does this to provide a fresh perspective on Galileo's discoveries, "to see Galileo's work as he himself approached and evaluated it." (dj blurb). Very good Hardcover (Item ID: 5714)
