Abstract :
Presents an anastatic reproduction of an album, Variae ac faciles molendina construendi inventiones, pacis et belli tempore (Florence, Museo di storia della scienza, MS Med. 2172.2) of late 16th-c. drawings of fountains and the mechanisms of mills. The album, which Ottavio Strada assembled from his collection and that of his father, Jacopo Strada, was presented to Giovanni de' Medici. Includes introductory essays on the Strada family's careers and interest in hydraulics and antiquarianism, the album in Florence and other related 16th-c. manuscripts by the Strada family, and on later publications derived from the Strada's work, such as the Desseins artificiaulx de toutes sortes des moulins (Frankfurt-am-Main, 1617). Essay titles: 'Il lavoro della famiglia Strada sui mulini e sul moto delle acque a essi correlato' = 'The Strada's work on mills and the movement of water in context,' by T. DaCosta Kaufman; 'La famiglia Strada e il suo ruolo nella diffusione delle invenzioni meccaniche nel Rinascimento' = 'The Strada family and its role in the dissemination of Renaissance mechanical inventions,' by D. J. Jansen; and 'Una storia a ritroso: intorno ai 'disegni artificiali di tutte le sorte di mulini', dai teatri di macchine all'album fiorentino degli Strada' = 'A story told backwards: on the 'artificial drawings of all sorts of mills', from the theatre of machines to the Florentine corpus of the Stradas,' by L. Dolza and V. Marchis. ;
