Catalogue Note

rare: this curious work was first published in 1620. This second edition contains a 92-page Defensio libri sui De sensu rerum by Campanella at the beginning. Born in Calabria in 1568, the Dominican philosopher and theologian Campanella spent 27 years in prison for plotting against the Spanish in Calabria. He composed most of his works during his incarceration and was eventually released from prison in 1626 at the request of Pope Urban VIII. After a new conspiracy in Calabria in 1634 he fled to Paris, where he died in 1639. His numerous other works include a brave defence of Galileo, Apologia pro Galileo mathematico (1622).
