The six-cornered snowflake by Johannes Kepler( Book )

In 1611, Johannes Kepler, wondering why the crystals in a snowflake always exhibit a six-fold symmetry, introduced The Six-Cornered Snowflake, the first scientific work on snow crystals.

The Controversy on the comets of 1618 by Galileo Galilei( Book )

9 editions published in 1960 in English and held by 483 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Novembre 1618: la comparsa di tre comete non solo eccita i timori dei superstiziosi, ma tiene "in continuo esercizio i primi ingegni d'Europa". Ottobre 1623: si conclude la stampa del Saggiatore di Galileo Galilei, colui che gli Accademici Lincei salutano come "lo scopritore non di nuove terre, ma di non più vedute parti del cielo". Spaziando dalla genesi del suono all'origine del calore alla composizione della luce "in atomi realmente indivisibili" Galileo entra pubblicamente nella disputa contro "Lotario Sarsi Sigensano, l'astronomico e filosofico scorpione", cioè il gesuita Orazio Grassi. Nel ripercorrere la vicenda delle sue scoperte Galileo delinea insieme una difesa del proprio operato e l'apologia della ricerca scientifica, sempre più insofferente dei vincoli imposti da autorità teologiche e politiche. Nel tempo in cui, come scrive il poeta John Donne, "la nuova filosofia mette tutto in dubbio", Galileo si affida alla matematica come a una guida sicura per uscire da "un oscuro laberinto" e comprendere il Grande Libro della natura; ma "l'artista toscano" non dimentica per questo il ruolo dell'esperimento e l'apporto della tecnica. Geometria, esperienza e "discorso" (cioè arte dell'argomentazione) cooperano così alla confutazione dell'errore in un'impresa che il singolo studioso può tradire solo col rendere il suo intelletto "mancipio - cioè servo - dell'intelletto di un altr'uomo"

Sidereus nuncius, or, The Sidereal messenger by Galileo Galilei( Book )

23 editions published between 1653 and 1989 in 3 languages and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Sidereus Nuncius (usually Sidereal Messenger, also Starry Messenger or Sidereal Message) is a short astronomical treatise (or pamphlet) published in New Latin by Galileo Galilei in March 1610. It was the first published scientific work based on observations made through a telescope, and it contains the results of Galileo's early observations of the imperfect and mountainous Moon, the hundreds of stars that were unable to be seen in either the Milky Way or certain constellations with the naked eye, and the Medicean Stars that appeared to be circling Jupiter.[1] The Latin word nuncius was typically used during this time period to denote messenger; however, albeit less frequently, it was also interpreted as message. While the title Sidereus Nuncius is usually translated into English as Sidereal Messenger, many of Galileo's early drafts of the book and later related writings indicate that the intended purpose of the book was "simply to report the news about recent developments in astronomy, not to pass himself off solemnly as an ambassador from heaven."[2] Therefore, the correct English translation of the title is Sidereal Message (or often, Starry Message)."--Wikiped, Nov/2014
