The literature on Galileo is vast and in many languages. His works and correspondence are available in Le Opere di Galileo Galilei, edited by Antonio Favaro and published at Florence, 1890–1910, reprinted with additions in later years. Bibliographies were compiled by A. Carli and Favaro (1588–1895) and by G. Boffito (1896–1940), continued to 1964 by E. McMullin in Galileo Man of Science (see below). The following list is limited to books in English; important journal articles and monographs after 1964 will be found by consulting bibliographies and notes in recent books, while earlier articles are identified in the three major bibliographies. English books of minor importance, and those dealing with Galileo only as a part of some other theme, have been omitted.
