Galileo's idol : Gianfrancesco Sagredo and the politics of knowledge by Nick Wilding( )

7 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

'Galileo's Idol' is a historical case-study of the use of information in the making of early modern scientific knowledge. It studies the relationship between natural philosophical and political practices in the Venetian Mediterranean at the start of the seventeenth century. Using the figure of Galileo's closest friend and confidant, Gianfrancesco Sagredo (1571-1620), it shows how techniques of political information exchange were appropriated by early practitioners of the new science
Faussaire de Lune : autopsie d'une imposture, Galilée et ses contrefacteurs by Nick Wilding( Book )

5 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in French and held by 39 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le Sidereus Nuncius de Galilée est le premier livre de sciences rédigé à partir d'observations au moyen de la lunette astronomique. On y découvrait en 1610 que la surface de la Lune pouvait être montagneuse, que quatre corps célestes étaient en orbite autour de Jupiter et qu'une multitude d'étoiles formait la Voie lactée dans un espace probablement infini. Illustré de gravures d'après les dessins de Galilée, ce petit volume portait un coup fatal à la conception aristotélicienne de l'univers. L'astronomie moderne fondée sur un instrument d'optique adéquat était née. De ce livre rare, un exemplaire exceptionnel, illustré de dessins originaux à la place des gravures, signé par Galilée, apparut sur le marché, en 2005, à New York. Une pléiade internationale d'experts l'examina longuement et sous tous les angles."--P. [4] of cover
