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 BandIII 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.

    Since humans first began thinking creatively – as opposed to merely procreatively – about sex, men and women have spiced up their love lives with this and that. Every civilization has come up with its own sex objects and sex toys. From rudimentarily-fashioned objects to the most exquisite ivory carvings of the Far East, eroticism has found expression in a multitude of different forms all displayed here. The beauty and the craftsmanship of these artistic masterpieces bear striking witness to the powers of generation in every culture throughout history. From works of art to sex toys, historian Hans-Jürgen Döpp analyses the complexities of human behaviour and the secret delights of those who own the little treasures featured in this book.
