QUADRANTS DIGITAL BOOKS PROJECT

Links for Digital Books about the Quadrants, Globes and related instruments.

Una piccola sezione, questa della Biblioteca Digitale Gnomonica: Le Fonti, in cui sono elencati alcuni tra i libri più importanti dedicati al quadrante orario e agli altri strumenti "quadrantali" e simili. La loro costruzione, il loro uso, le loro applicazioni come si può vedere, non solo nella gnomonica e nella misurazione del tempo in generale, ma anche nelle fondamentali operazioni geodetiche, nella navigazione, nell'astronomia, ecc. in quanto strumento di eccellenza dal medioevo, di comune uso quotidiano. Sono stati esclusi dalla lista quei libri di gnomonica che trattano anche di quadranti e che sono già compresi nell'elenco principale di questo progetto.
