Galileo

Would need to use a different edition

Petri Gassendi Institutio astronomica, juxta hypotheses tam veterum quàm recentiorum. Cui accesserunt Galilei Galilei Nuntius sidereus, et Johannis Kepleri Dioptrice Londini, typis Jacobi Flesher, 1653  Spec Coll QB41 .G2 1653  

It helps to search "Galilei, Galileo" to avoid all teh NASA documents on Galileo spacecraft and it's mission.

We will have many books and documents on the sciences that came out of his work.
