    In 1609, Galileo constructed the first powerful telescope and started observing the heavens, which led to many monumental discoveries. He published his initial findings on the moon and the stars in a short treatise titled "Sidereus Nuncius" ("Sidereal Messenger"). 

     

    The new Black Letter Press edition holds both Latin and English translation in one Book. The small hardcover is bound in Linen and is embossed with a circle, that reminds to a view through the telescope. In the circle you see Galileo's drawings of the Pleiades star cluster.
