Summary
  • Galileo's O, Band III, ist in der Buchgeschichte ohne Vorbild. Ein Kreis von Spezialisten der Kunst-, Buch-, Wissenschafts-, Material- und Restaurierungsgeschichte korrigiert in diesem Werk die eigenen Ergebnisse der ersten beiden Bände. In deren Zentrum stand das New Yorker Exemplar von Galileis "Sternenboten" (Sidereus Nuncius) von 1610. Die Analyse war als Beispiel einer umfassenden Kooperation gedacht, und zahlreiche Ergebnisse sind nach wie vor gültig, doch das zentrale Objekt hat sich als Produkt einer internationalen Gruppe von Fälschern erwiesen. Indem Band III die Chronologie und die Methoden dieser Entdeckung beschreibt, könnte er eine Art Wasserscheide im andauernden Wettstreit zwischen den immer feineren Methoden von Fälschern und den neuen Methoden darstellen, ihnen auf die Spur zu kommen. Das Buch ist schließlich auch ein Psychogramm von Spezialisten, die gleichsam gegen sich selbst forschen, um vergleichbare Irrtümer in Zukunft zu vermeiden.--
  • Galileo's O, Volume III, is perhaps without peer in the history of the book. In this work, historians in various fields revise the results they presented in the first two volumes, which focused on the New York copy of Sidereus Nuncius, written in 1610. The analysis of this book was conceived as a uniquely multidisciplinary and cooperative undertaking, and many of its findings remain valid. Yet the subject of analysis proved to be the work of an international group of forgers. Volume III describes the chronology and methods by which the discovery of forgery was made - a veritable watershed moment in the continuing struggle between the ever-more refined methods of forgers and new methods used to apprehend them. Ultimately, the work also provides insight into the psychology of specialists who "research themselves" in order to prevent similar errors in the future.--
