Life and Works of Galileo

The Life and Works of Galileo: A Guided Tour from Kerry Magruder on Vimeo.

This is a presentation I made at NASA-Langley about the collection of first edition copies of Galileo’s works held in the OU History of Science Collections. The hour-long video uses Galileo’s printed books as the basic framework for telling the story of Galileo’s life and work. As you watch the presentation, consider which of Galileo’s books will be next on your personal reading list!
