Description

Giuseppe Moleto's Dialogo intorno alla meccanica, which remained unpublished until very recent times (cf. modern edition by W.R. Laird, 2000), may be considered a reworking in the vernacular of the author's scholarly discussions over the Mechanics witnessed by manuscript notes from his lectures preserved at the Ambrosiana Library in Milan (S 100 sup.).
