Opera Archimedis Syracusani philosophi et mathematici ingeniosissimi per Nicolaum Tartaleam … (facsimile)
In 1503, the Neapolitan mathematician Luca Gaurico published a text on the quadrature of the circle which also contained the Latin translation of Archimedes' Measure of the Circle and Quadrature of the Parabola. In 1543, mathematician Niccolò Tartaglia from Brescia published a book in Latin which also featured the text of On the Equilibrium of Planes and the first book of On Floating Bodies. On the title page, Tartaglia presented himself as the translator of the emended text and as the restorer of its illustrations. The discovery of Codex C, however, clearly demonstrated that Tartaglia had merely used a copy of the Moerbeke translation. The second volume of On Floating Bodies was published posthumously in 1565.
