Abstract:

Autograph signed letter, dated March 12, 1643 at the Pitti Palace in Florence, from Robert Dudley, duke of Northumberland, to Benedetto Guerrini, chamberlain to the Grand Duke Ferdinand de' Medici II--to whom the work was eventually dedicated--relating to delays in the publication of Dudley's great sea atlas, the Arcano del mare (1646-1647).

Although the Grand Duke authorized the printing more than eight months ago, only three half sheets have been printed so far. Dudley has complained constantly about the delay, and Lucini, the engraver, is now in Florence trying to find out what the problem is. Apparently, the printer blames the publisher, Francesco Rondinelli, a busy man, but also one who refuses any help with the atlas project. Dudley's friend, Evangelista Torricelli, mathematician and brilliant disciple of Galileo, has offered to help correct the proofs, but Rondinelli has refused. Dudley asks Guerrini to investigate the long delay, to talk to Lucini, and to ask the Grand Duke to expedite the project, or it will never be finished.
