“I have never met a man so ignorant that I couldn’t learn something from him.”

― Galileo Galilei

 

Few names are as synonymous with astronomy as Galileo. Known for his astronomical discoveries and physics studies, Galileo is unquestionably one of the most important scientists to ever live. He published several landmark books including ‘The Assayer’ or ‘Saggiatore’ – the pioneering book on the scientific method. Galileo wrote this book as a response to Grassi’s work on celestial bodies and comets in which Grassi did not give credit to Galileo for his discoveries.

 

In 1655, Bolognese publisher Dozza printed the complete works of Galileo including ‘Saggiatore’. This edition includes impressive woodcut illustrations throughout. One of the most iconic Galileo illustrations depicts the rings of Saturn and the phases of Venus.
