Barely two years after Galileo was condemned and his Dialogo sopra i due massimi sistemi del mondo placed on the Index of forbidden books, this Latin translation was published at Strassburg by a group of Galileo’s Protestant friends, with Galileo himself playing an active role. A complex publication strategy was devised, so that the work would escape Roman censorship, and obtain the widest possible circulation (Stéphane Garcia, "L'édition strasbourgeoise du ‘Systema cosmicum’ (1635-1636), dernier combat copernicien de Galilée" in Bulletin de la Société de l'Histoire du Protestantisme Français, volume 146, 2000, pp.307-334).

The translator, Matthias Bernegger (1582-1640), professor of history at Strassburg and an amateur astronomer, had previously translated into Latin Galileo’s treatise on the proportional compass, adding his own extensive notes on the instrument (Strassburg: Karl Kieffer, 1612; lot 199). A reissue of that work is here bound-in after the Systema Cosmicum; it is substantially the sheets of the 1612 first edition, with only the initial quire (title and dedication) reprinted by David Hautt.
