"Adventure and Art: The First Hundred Years of Printing, was published by the Rutgers University Libraries to accompany an exhibition of books published during the first century of printing, a transitional time of great innovation and accomplishment. Detailed descriptions of Rutgers' rare books and incunabula, some not held by any other North American library, are presented along with photographs of nearly thirty of the collection's most exquisite pieces. Readers who are new to the world of rare books will discover the extraordinary beauty and craftsmanship of these fifteenth- and sixteenth-century pieces, and develop an understanding of the cultural transformations wrought by the emergence and refinement of the art of printing."--BOOK JACKET

Galileo's O( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in German and English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

V. 1 is a detailed analysis of a previously unknown proof copy of the first edition of Galileo's Sidereus nuncius (1610), in which watercolor drawings appear in place of the etchings of the published edition, consigned in 2005 to the antiquarian bookselling firm of Martayan Lan (New York, New York). V. 2 is an account of the composition and production of the edition, based on analysis of extant copies (a census of which is included) as well as the New York proof copy. V. 3 was written in response to the discovery, soon after the publication of v. 2, that the proof copy was in fact an elaborate forgery produced between 2003 and 2005 under the direction of Marino Massimo de Caro, as first reported in the article "A very rare book," by Nicholas Schmidle, in The New Yorker issue of 16 December 2013. V. 4, in German, is a heavily revised edition of Horst Bredekamp's Galilei der Künstler (Berlin: Akademie Verlag, 2007), which had included a chapter on the then unrecognized forgery
Galileo makes a book : the first edition of Sidereus Nuncius, Venice 1610 by Paul Needham( Book )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and Undetermined and held by 48 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Der "Sternenbote", Galileo Galileis im Jahre 1610 in Venedig publizierter Sidereus Nuncius, hat ebenso Geschichte geschrieben wie Kopernikus De revolutionibus und Newtons Principia. Erstmals wurde hier durch die Nutzung des Teleskopes deutlich, dass Gestirne wie der Mond eine ebenso zerklüftete Oberfläche besitzen wie die Erde. Zudem erkannte Galilei, dass Planeten wie der Jupiter das Zentrum eines eigenen Planetensystems bilden. Galileis Buch veränderte die Sicht des Kosmos für immer. Aus Angst davor, dass ihm die Konkurrenz zuvorkommen würde, hat Galilei sein Werk wie von Furien gehetzt produziert. Acht Wochen, nachdem er die erste Zeile geschrieben hatte, war es als fertiges Buch auf dem Markt. Die ersten Teile wurden bereits in der Druckerei gesetzt, als der zweite Teil weder erforscht noch geschrieben war. Von der ersten bis zur letzten Seite sind die Spuren dieser atemlosen Hast sichtbar geblieben, und auch hierin liegt sein unnachahmlicher Reiz
