Tartaglia, Niccolò
S. da Sabio, Vinegia, 1537
102.  Tartaglia produced this pioneering work in the study of ballistics and how it can benefit from mathematical analysis. He was able to demonstrate convincingly the true path of a cannonbal fired from a cannon and how it would not be straight, but follow a curved trajectory.  The table of contents (following the title page) calls for 5 books, when, in fact, there are only 3.  Colophon: [Printer's device] In Vinegia per Stephano da Sabio, ad instantia di Nicolo Tartalea brisciano il qual habita a San Salvador, 1537.  Signatures: *4 A-L4(A4blank).
