Portrait of Galileo from Systema Cosmicum, Augustae Treboc. [Strasbourg], 1635
Like the engraving of the three astronomers, the portrait of Galileo has been altered in the Latin edition of his Dialogo. He faces in the opposite direction and his titles are given in Latin. Additionally, some of the ornamental detail in the portrait has been altered to make the overall effect more sober. The engraving is signed Jac. al Heyden.
